Hii Girlies!

So first is the cake.

You need:

3 large eggs
8 ozs SR flour
1 3/4 ozs cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Grate or liquidise the beetroot whatever takes your preference
2. Melt the dark chocolate
3. Beat together the butter, soft light brown sugar and eggs in a bowl
4. Mix in the beetroot and chocolate to the butter mix and mix well together
5. Sieve in the flour, cocoa powder and add the salt 
6. Pour mix into tin and Bake.

Dust with icing sugar and serve with cream/ clotted cream.
