Red Velvet Beetroot Cake
Just gonna drop this beet...
Red Velvet Beet Root cake recipe that is.
Incase you guys missed it, yesterday January 29, I went live for my first time ever on Instagram to cohost Evolved 11 with my favorite brand of all time Eating Evolved! Let's just say I was fan girling hard! Christine, Rick & team made the whole event run so smoothly and they really are the easiest people to talk to.
So as a thank you to them for inviting me on and allowing me to share a little bit of my story I decided to make this cake, using some of my fav EE products while making sure is was Rick allergy free. Not only is this cake choc(olate) full of flavor but its packed with nutrients, free of oils, gluten, dairy, nuts, refined sugar and officially EE taste tested and approved.
