Campaign Beetroot; Assault Wave Two

Yesterday our Little Garden Helpers took a short break from digging carrots up in the garden to do some baking. On the menu was Beetroot and Chocolate cake and it was a huge success. We found the recipe on the BBC Good Food website and it was delicious.

I asked the family if this cake was worth growing beetroot for and the answer was a resounding yes. Garden Girl said 'Yes, I think I like beetroot now' and then 'You can me a beetroot sandwich next'. I have to admit I nearly fell off my seat. Meanwhile, Garden Boy was stuffing pieces the size of an egg into his mouth, he just could not eat it quick enough.

So what is on the menu for today? Well, Beetroot sandwiches of course.


  1. Wow - what a turnaround! I particularly like cottage cheese with beetroot...

  2. It looks delicious. I've never tried beetroot in a cake before, but I've heard that it makes the cake nice and moist. I might have to give this a go myself. I might just find that I can get my own fussy eaters to try beetroot then.
