Birthday Beetroot Brownie Cake

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 1/4 x A cup of apple sauce
  • 2 x Tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 x A cup of vegan butter
  • 1 and 1/2 x Tsp of baking powder
  • 2 x Tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 x A cup of sugar
  • 1/2 x A cup of sweetener
  • 1 and 1/4 x Cups of plain flour
  •  1/2 x Cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/4 x Cup of soya milk
  • 1 x Cup of beetroot puree
  • Salt

Frosting

  • 1 and 1/4 x Cups of powdered icing sugar
  • 1 x Tbsp of vegan butter
  • 1 x Tbsp of soya milk
  • 2 x Tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1 x Tsp yellow food colouring

 

Directions

  1. Place all of the brownie ingredients into a blender and mix until a smooth batter has formed.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tray and cook in a pre-heated oven at 200°c for 45 minutes. You can check it is cooked by placing a cocktail stick into the middle of the brownie. If when you pull it out there is no cake stuck to it…it is cooked.
  4. Take the brownie out of the oven and allow to cool. Using a heart shaped cutter, cut 4 heart shapes.
  5. Now to make the frosting, use an electric whisk to mix all the ingredients together.
  6. Now spoon a layer of frosting onto a piece of the brownie and stack another brownie on top and repeat using all of the brownies. Voila…you got yourself a Birthday beetroot Brownie cake.
