Golden Beetroot and Marmalade Cake (VG optional)



2 cups of grated golden beetroot (Oamaru Organics)

1 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar 

1 1/2 tsp baking powder 

1 tsp baking soda 

1 tsp cinnamon 

1/4 cup applesauce (VG) or 2 eggs (Agreeable Nature)

1/4 cup plain oil

1/2 cup favourite marmalade


Using a large bowl put in the grated beetroot and the dry ingredients and mix well. You’ll need all of the beets to be covered in the flour mix.  Using a small bowl mix the oil, eggs/applesauce, and marmalade well, then add it into the beet mix. Mix altogether and pour into a greased lined cake tin, (23cm is fine). Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the top springs back.  Leave to cool on a wire rack. It’s great as a dessert or for afternoon tea with a serving of yogurt or cream.
