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
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup coconut cream
- 1 scoop pure unflavored whey protein
- 1/8 cup coconut flour
- 4 heap teaspoons cocoa
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.
