Beetroot & Chocolate Cakes – Montessori Centenary Garden Recipe
Beetroot are such a beautiful colour! They can make a bit of a mess though so be careful when you prepare them. This recipe is delicious – the chocolate gives the richness with the beetroot giving it some natural sweetness, perfect for children to make at home.
100g plain yoghurt
30g cocoa powder
75g unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
125g wholemeal flour
120g peeled and grated beetroot
100ml hot water
pinch of salt
50g dark or milk chocolate
Preheat the oven to 170°C. Place all of the ingredients in the food processor in the order as above and whiz until smooth. Place in greased muffin pans or bundt tins and bake for 15-20 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Remove from the tins and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Melt the chocolate and, using a fork, drizzle over the top of each cake.
