Vegan Beet Root Cake

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,


That I am known my family as someone who experiments with food is not new.
 In fact hubby’s aunt once commented that I cannot eat the same amti, bhaji, poli and bhat everyday and I have taught the same to my family. How do you expect variety in food every day? At that moment I felt very bad and tried to confirm to the norm but now I realize there are so many ways of making the veggie in question that I cannot eat the same thing everyday also I am not the only one who wants variety she should look at my friends here.

So we do have  problem veggies in our house one of them  is beet root. I just cannot get them to eat it! I have waxed eloquently about the nutrients in beets, the lovely colour that it has etc. but all is like pouring water over the ducks back!!

So when I read here about the cake with beet roots in it. Totally invisible, no flavor of beet root I jumped at the idea. What can be a better healthy snack for The BM#14, Group 2 Day 4?
Here is the original recipe with all my heartfelt thanks to Champa and here is mine.


1 cup maida
¼ cup cocoa
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda
1 tblsp flax seed powder
3 tblsp warm water
1 cup beet, peeled and shredded
¼ cup oil
¼ cup+2 tblsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
¼ cup chocolate chips
1.    Soak the flax seeds with warm water for about 5 minutes.
2.    Grease a loaf pan and pre heat the oven to 180ᵒC.
3.    Sift the maida, baking powder, soda, salt and cocoa in a big bowl.
4. Add the chocolate chips. Mix well.
5.    Add the grated beets, ½ cup milk and oil. Fold.
6.    In case the mixture is too stiff add the 2 tblsp milk.
7.    Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or till the knife inserted comes out clean.

    I am surprised that the beets haven't imparted the trademark colour to this cake. That said, this is a great way to incorporate veggies into the diet.
