I have been wanting to try making a healthier version for a while and here it is: the beetroot adds a great sweet flavour and a nice red colour and the coconut frosting is to die for!

I use flaxseed (linseed) meal in this recipe. As I have had a few people ask me what this is when I’ve used it in past recipes, I’ll give a quick rundown. Flaxseeds are the seeds from the flax plant and can be bought whole, ground up to make Continue reading
