Secret Chocolate Cake

In Desserts, Recipes, Thanksgiving 2016 by Lori Hill4 Comments

This is a recipe I found in the cookbook Simply in Season Children’s CookbookThe “secret” to this chocolate cake is that it contains beets! As a kid, I was not fond of beets (my mother served us canned beets which still makes me shudder), but this is a fun — if not sneaky — way to get them some vegetables in their diet. And it tastes awesome!  The first time I made it, I got a half slice while my husband John and the boys devoured the rest of the cake in less than a day!

I have “veganified” this recipe and switched out the eggs with egg replacer from The Veggthe yogurt with Dairy Free Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative from So Delicious and vegan chocolate chips from Equal Exchange.
