Skinny Chocolate & Beetroot cake (II) for valentine’s day

This is my all time favourite cake for today ~ Valentine’s day!

I did some improvement about this favourite recipe, I tried to reduce the fat and use half of sweetener (stevis) to substitute the sugar content , to see how is the result will be. Will it be too dry or it taste bland? BUT, it came out still so moist and the sweet just right for me, YUMMY!

And this time, I’m a bit lazy and dizzy, because I had a bad flu started from few days ago. So, I chucked all the ingredients into the food processor to do the work for me, I only need to do the washing!

If someone on diet, this is definitely the right one for you, I’m so happy to share this recipe to you all to enjoy it!
