Carrot cake is a no-brainer, so why not beetroot? Especially when it's fragrant with spice and textured with all sorts of seeds. Rapadura sugar gives the frosting a warm caramel flavour and just a little crunch.
Note Rapadura sugar, an unrefined cane sugar, is available in blocks or granulated from health-food shops and South American grocers.
