hi original recipe adapted from oct 2009 morrisons magazine(just before i was diagnosed) cooking is my therapy!!,it can be viewed on line(morrisons magazine site), I leave off any frosting on top some recipes suggest choc or cream cheese, this makes it healthier and avoids death by chocolate ha ha .!!!.
Basic cake principle but 100mls of oil is used instead of fat I use rice bran oil sold at morrisons and ASDA as no cholesterol!! but you could use sunflower or olive, 250g or bout 4oz of beetroot cooked but NOT PICKLED!,About 200g cocoa powder or you could use 200g melted plain chocolate more fat and calories!!up to you. Then 2/3 large FREE range eggs! not battery farm rubbish, 100-150g self raising flour ,you could use gluten free or wholemeal if you want to be extra healthy, 1/2 to 1 tsp baking powder (50g of either ground almonds or crushed walnuts optional) if not having add extra 50g cocoa, have found morrisons own better than cadburys, darker, more rich/ bitter, if you have sweet tooth substitute 150g of green and blacks organic drinking choc in place of cocoa, 200g of any light brown, demera, golden cater sugar of your choice
