Carrot cakes are my absolute favorite ones, I have a normal carrot cake and a richly frosted american version of it in this blog. If carrot cake taste this delicious, how will a beetroot cake taste like. Specially when it is combined with some chocolate. This was the question that was sitting in my mind for ages. I thought to give it a try and this was the result, it was fudgy, chocolaty and tasted so healthy. This version is so simple, you dont need butter or eggs in it. I hope you will love this and let me know if you try this someday.
