Chocolate and beetroot layer cake gather and feast

Cake

  • 300g good quality dark chocolate (use a ‘raw chocolate’ for a refined sugar free cake)
  • 80g coconut oil
  • 3 eggs or 3 'chia seed eggs' for a completely vegan cake (blend 3 tbs chia seeds with 6 tbs water (or 9 tbs of water if it seems a little dry) and leave to sit for a couple of minutes)
  • 280g coconut sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla bean powder (or extract)
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¾ cup buckwheat flour
  • 1½ cups almond meal
  • ½ tsp bi carb soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  •  ¼ cup cacao powder
  • 400g raw beetroot, peeled, finely grated & squeezed of excess liquid
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • ½ tsp sea salt

Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  • 2 large or 3 medium ‘just ripe’ avocados (about 2 cups). ‘Reed’ are the best type of avocado for this as they are the creamiest. If you can’t get hold of ‘reeds’, use avocados that are a little under ripe rather than over ripe.
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbs rice malt syrup
  • 3 tbs cacao powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 200g dark chocolate, melted and slightly cooled (I used a mix of ‘raw cacao’ and ‘80%’ Pana Chocolate)
