Vegan Chocolate Beet Cake is delicate, lightly sweetened, and delicious! It's a true one-bowl recipe and requires only a few minutes to mix together. Perfect treat with a cup of tea.makes 1 loaf cake in 12x4-inch pan
Oil the loaf pan really well, then add a little bit of cocoa powder and shake the pan to distribute the cocoa powder around the bottom of the pan and the sides. It'll prevent the cake from sticking to the pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the beet puree, oil, water, vanilla extract, and orange oil (if using).
Add the sugar and mix well.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until all the flour disappears.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60-75 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean or just with a few dry crumbs.
Cool and enjoy.
This is not a very sweet cake. Feel free to increase the amount of sugar if you prefer sweeter cakes. Also, feel free to use all white or half white and half brown sugar for sturdier cake. Using all brown sugar makes the cake soft and delicate.Start checking if the cake is baked through around 50 minutes. My oven takes usually longer to bake, so it is done after 75 minutes only but other ovens may have the cake done at around 60 minutes.
