People may not fond of the raw beetroot with the earthy flavour, but they can experience the raw beet smoothie, funny, isn’t it? Yes, our taste bud will be quite strange sometimes! Anyway, we can’t deny the awesome nutrient from them.

They’re extremely healthy for us, rich with vitamins A, B, C and iron, also high in manganese, folate, fiber, potassium, and a rare source of phytonutrients, which have been proven to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and detoxification. You can find out more information from here.

Use beetroot for one of the ingredients to bake cake, it passes on the outstanding moisture for the cake, that’s why I like to adapt it into my chocolate cake all the time. Not only the benefit of the moisture, but with the sweetness that we can reduce the sugar content intake also.

If you like to make this cake for diabetes, bound off the sugar, only adding one mashed banana or else. That will give the good moisture and sweetness for them to enjoy! Also, substitute the white flour to the whole-grain or wholemeal flour for them will be a better choice for them.

It couldn’t be so easy to achieve this little cake, less mixing bowl, less arm work, less washing up later.
