I’ve always been sceptical of veg in cake. The two just don’t sit together in my world. Carrot cake? No! And then arrived the trend for using beetroot in chocolate cake. Again, I was sceptical, but kept on hearing how delicious beetroot-laden chocolate cake is. And I also realised that it could potentially be one more method of sneaking goodness into Tink’s diet without her realising, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. Here is how I made a wonderfully sticky chocolate beetroot cake – I did it as a tray bake!

  1. Preheat the oven to 170c or gas mark 3. Grease and line with baking paper a large baking tray (20x30cm)
  2. Using a stand mixer or an electric whisk, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Put to one side.
  3. In the mixing bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix together until well blended.
  4. Add the egg whites to the mixture, folding gently to keep in as much air as possible.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and pop into the oven for around 40 minutes. Test with a skewer or knife to ensure it's cooked through.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before lifting out of the tray and onto a wire rack to cool fully.
  7. Ice using ready made chocolate icing and cut into squares.
