Chocolate & Beetroot Cake – with Jude Blereau


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.”

To find the recipe for Jude’s creation, as well as detailed photographs and tips for filling and icing the cake, go to: Chocolate + Beetroot, with love
