Red Devil Beet Bundt Cake




Red Devil Bundt Cake





Red Velvet Cake


Red Beet Bundt Cake

OH! Didn't I mention that it has red beets in it? As in RAW red beets? Umm, where did you think some of the natural red food coloring comes from?

Never mind! Go ahead and make this - everyone will be wanting seconds! Whenever I make this for a crowd/supper club, it seems to disappear. 

Don't ask why, but it seems that Men are always asking for this cake.

Yes the recipe is correct - I always add cayenne pepper to my chocolate. Always! The cayenne seems to take the chocolate over the top!

Enjoy!



From Rosebud
Serves 16

Cake
1 cup plus 2 Tbs. almond milk
1 med. beet, peeled, cut into  ½-inch dice, 1 cup
2 Tbs. flaxseed meal
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
1 ½ cups sugar
⅓ cup canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. chocolate extract
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ½ tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste



1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
2. Purée almond milk, beet, flaxseed meal, and vinegar in blender until smooth. Transfer to bowl; stir in sugar, canola oil, vanilla extract, and chocolate extract.
3. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in bowl. Fold into almond milk mixture. Transfer batter to prepared Bundt pan. Bake 1 hour, or until top is firm and tip of knife inserted in center of Cake comes out clean.
4. Transfer Cake (still in pan) to wire rack, cool 10 mins. Unmold and cool completely.



Ganache
1/2 avocado (ripe)
4 tablespoons raw cacao or cocoa powder
4 tablespoons maple syrup or agave
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste

Add all ganache ingredients into a blender/food processor, process until smooth.  Try really hard not to eat all the ganache before it reaches the cake/brownies/bowl/whatever!  If you succeed in this (well done!), spread the ganache nice and thickly over your dessert and pop back into the fridge for 4 hours or so to set.



Now go ahead and whip yourself up another batch of this to die for chocolate ganache! and eat it all by yourself! After all - you deserve it!
