Happy Valentine’s day y’all! Whatever that means to you. I love baking so much that I think nothing says you care more than a homemade cake. I made this recipe for my friend Lola’s new site, Canteen. I used fresh beetroot from my veg box but you could easily use vacuum packed – just check that it’s not pickled *gags*. Weigh the veg carefully – I just threw in all the beetroot I had for the first batch I made and Mr F declared it too beetroot-y. The kids, however, ate the small slice I gave them and immediately came back for more. It was a hit and a very sneaky way of crowbarring more veg in to their diets, methinks.
