I love beetroot cake. I remember making it for my stepdad when I was a kid, it was a favourite of his. Well, it soon became a favourite of mine too. And now, I can have beetroot cake every morning in this vegan breakfast!
This recipe has actually been sitting in my “drafts” for 6 months. I’ve just been waiting for the perfect time to release it…and now that time has come. You see, I’ve actually been working on a new ebook. The working title is “Hide And Seek Vegetables” – it’s going to be a collection of recipes with hidden vegetables, like Eggplant Banana Cake. Choc-Beet Muffins. Pumpkin Pizza Crust. You may have seen some sneak peeks on Instagram or Snapchat (username: viedelavegan). Take a look below for some more previews…
But first, I need your help. Would you like to be a recipe tester? I’m just looking for a few people to test the recipes to make sure everything I’m putting in this ebook is going to be TASTY and EASY. If you would like to help me out, I’d love it if you could fill out this survey. Thanks guys! Thanks for all the recipe testing applications! The recipes have all been tested now and the ebook will be available on 30th April <3
Now, back to this vegan breakfast. So you can see why it’s perfect timing to post this recipe now – there’s a hidden serve of beetroot in there ;) well, ok. It’s not exactly hidden…the pink colour is a dead giveaway, I know. But it’s a vegetable! In your breakfast! Hiding underneath some chocolate sauce! By the way, that chocolate sauce – I highly, highly recommend it. It really adds a new dimension to the beetroot cake porridge. Sure, the porridge tastes nice (to me) without the sauce, but that sauce makes it so decadent and chocolatey <3
