One of his veggies in season right now, are beetroots. Juicy, dark purple, fresh beetroots. I use them in soups, raw in salads, in veggie curries. And I use them in this moist, dense and rich chocolatecake. In a cake the beetroots add sweetness, as well as moisture. And what I love most about this cake, is that you can just mix it all together. No fuss! Try it one of these lovely days in May.
