Chocolate & Beetroot Cake – with Jude Blereau

Jude-Choc-Cake-76

I spent a happy morning in wholefood chef and author Jude Blereau’s kitchen recently, photographing her Chocolate and Beetroot Cake for a Mother’s Day blog post. And yes, once we had finished we had a cup of tea, a girly chat and – of course – a (large) piece of cake! Yum!

Creamy Chocolate & Coconut Fudge Frosting, and Raspberry Better Buttercream complete the ensemble. Yes, it is as good as it sounds.

Favourite line from Jude’s blog post: “Why cake ? Because joy and deliciousness are nutrients in their own right, as are love and beauty.”
