    I've actually really been digging my own variation on the beetroot cake recipe posted by Goosejuggler a while back. It comes out almost exactly like a traditional British chocolate steamed pudding, which was always one of my favorites as a child. I imagine if you were to bake it, it would be drier and 'cakier'.

    - 1 1/2 beetroot, cooked and peeled
    - 2 eggs
    - vanilla
    - 1 tbsp coconut oil
    - 1/4 cup coconut cream
    - 1 scoop pure unflavored whey protein
    - 1/8 cup coconut flour
    - 4 heap teaspoons cocoa
    - cinnamon

    Microwave for six minutes. Double to fill a traditional cake tin, or leave as-is for two servings.

    As a further note, I did originally attempt to bake this; late in the process while baking in a glass dish I suffered a 'catastrophic holding failure' during the doneness validation phase. This covered most of the kitchen and my bare legs with shards of glass and scalding chocolate beetroot. After consoling myself with a small-scale microwave do-over, I was pleased enough with the results that I haven't tried baking again yet.

    Grace's bday cake turned out amazing thanks to the frosting. I mixed mascarpone with raw honey, wildcrafted vanilla, heavy cream, and a pinch of sea salt. Sensational! I could eat a bowl of just that. Screw cake :P

    **whispers** I don't even know what "mascarpone" is.

    **hangs head in shame**

    (Did I mention that before TPB, I never cooked or baked?)

    mascarpone is a sweet Italian cream cheese. You can usually find it at your local grocery store with the other soft cheeses. Mine is always in the deli.
