Beet Cake


Yes, I know the name of the recipe might sound weird – why would you use beet in a cake? Well, why not? It’s pink and beautiful, plus kids really enjoy it and they don’t even know they’re eating a vegetable cake! This cake is completely vegan so there are no eggs or dairy, that can really help if you need to make a cake for someone who is allergic to one of the above.


For the Applesauce

1. Place apple cubes, lemon juice and water in a pot, cook on high, and bring to a boil.
2. Lower the heat, simmer for 20 minutes until the apples are very soft, and fall apart.
