The instruction how to make Beetroot and chocolate cake

  1. Preheat oven 180C. Grease a 20cm baba or bundt pan.
  2. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the beetroot, flour, cocoa powder and buttermilk, in 2 batches, and stir to combine. Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.
  3. Bake for 40-45 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, to make the candied beetroot, combine the sugar and water in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until sugar dissolves. Add the beetroot. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook, turning occasionally, for 20 mins or until beetroot is slightly translucent and syrup thickens. Transfer the beetroot to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Add the lemon juice to the pan and stir to combine.
  5. To make the chocolate drizzle, combine the icing sugar, cocoa powder, butter and milk in a small bowl. Stir until well combined. Drizzle over the cooled cake immediately.
  6. Top the cake with whipped cream and candied beetroot slices and drizzle with the syrup.
