I am not a huge fan of chocolate and a heavy triple chocolate gateaux is about the my worse nightmare as I truly don’t like the heavy bitter flavour. So why on earth did I decide to bake a chocolate cake? Well folks, not only do I like a challenge but there is something different about this recipe I developed : I used spicy Indian hot chocolate cacao from Zaabar and beets.
Yes beets, to keep the cake moist, and it works. To my own surprise no less!
I brought the cake to a dinner party at a dear friends home and didn’t tell anyone of the ingredients. Their reactions were incredible, they loved it even the ones who don’t like beets.
So have a go and see what your friends think …
