Delicious Beetroot Chocolate Cake

We are back with a new delicious recipe from one of our favourite Nordic food blogger, Norwegian Therese Elstad from My Nordic Kitchen. This time we are making a Beetroot Chocolate Cake!


For those days when you need to feed your chocolate craving! This Beetroot Chocolate Cake is just as delicious as it looks- with its moist and dense interior covered by a dark and sweet glaze.
It's a wonder for any chocoholics out there- it’s crazy moist and utterly delicious! It has a subtle flavour of beetroot- so even if you don’t appreciate the earthy flavour of beets, this cake might surprise you!
