I've added this so I don't forget how to make it! This beetroot chocolate fudge cake will hit you between the eyes and knock you out. The beauty of this recipe is that it is incredibly rich and deep in flavour, yet uses hardly any flour or fat. I promise you that a little will go a long way. The beetroot is not a touch of madness - it actually provides the gungy texture that makes a great fudge cake, and some natural pink sweetness too. Leave yourself plenty of time to make this cake because it is quite a lengthy recipe. The cake is best eaten when it is still slightly warm. It is also really important to ice it at the last minute or the icing can lose its shine. However, it would freeze beautifully providing you put it away before icing. Simply defrost when needed and ice at the last minute.
