Chocolate Beetroot Cake | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

We use a granulated sweetener that has the same weight and sweetness as sugar. This means you can substitute it for the real stuff if you prefer!

There are lots of high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

We can also use Sukrin Icing which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to icing sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Icing over on Amazon UK too.

INSTRUCTIONS
For the Cake
  1. Finely grate the beetroot and set aside. Separate the egg whites from the yolks
  2. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, egg yolks, grated beetroot and the beetroot juice
  3. In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the flour and egg yolk mixture, until they are mixed evenly
  5. Pour the mixture into a loaf tin (I lined the bottom with baking parchment and gave it a quick spray with Frylight just in case)
  6. Bake for 25 minutes at 180ºC until golden brown or until the knife comes out clean. Don't be tempted to check it before 25 minutes or the cake will sink!
  7. Turn the heat down to 150ºC and bake for another 10 minutes
  8. Leave to cool, and then cut into 8 equal slices
  9. Serve on its own or drizzled with chocolate icing
For the Icing
  1. Simply mix the 3 tbsp of Nativa Icing Mix with the Choc Shot and water then drizzle over the cake to serve

  1. Tastes quite good but could be more chocolatey, I only put in 10 g of sweetener as I don’t like cakes very sweet . Overall very edible .

  2. I’m wondering if there is any way of adding sweet potato instead…. apparently it makes nice gooey brownies. I’m not a great baker so scared to experiment!
