Chef Kate – Chocolate and Beetroot Cake infused with Orange Oil

You’ll fall in love with delicious, moist cake that is full of healthy goodness. It’s sure to please and it’s a wonderful way to add a little more nutrition to your life. Young Living Orange or Tangerine oils go really great with chocolate. I’ve also used a little Young Living rose oil in this recipe for special occasions…it’s divine!

NOTE: To make beetroot puree, peel and chop 1 – 2  beetroots (depending on their size, you’ll need ½ cup of puree). Place the cut beetroot into a pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook until beetroot is tender, about 15 – 20 minutes. Let beetroot cool and then put them in a food processor with a little of the cooking liquid and process on high until smooth.

Chef Kate TIP: The smaller you cut the beetroot pieces the quicker they will cook. You can also use pre-cooked beetroot or unsweetened apple sauce.
