    • Carrot and beetroot cake

      Carrot and beetroot cake

      Our blogger Maxine says: 'Thereís definitely something about beetrootís vibrant colour that appeals to the child in me. How does something that looks quite boring when itís growing in its cold, damp vegetable patch, have the capacity to transform into something quite captivating on the plate? I must admit itís taken me years to find a chocolate cake recipe thatís as moist and as light as this one. The oil and the vegetables seem to give it an added fine texture and a rich, deep chocolate flavour and colour.'
