With a nod to the north, this recipe gets its velvety texture from almond milk, cooked quinoa and maple syrup. They work alongside with a delicious chocolate frosting to make the best beet cake you’ve ever tasted…

- Preheat the oven to 180ºC(350F) and
- Add all the wet ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the blender mixture.
- Divide the batter between 2 pans lined with baking paper.
- Bake the cakes for 40 min (don't worry if the cake isn't completely solid, it's suppose to be moist inside!).
- Melt the chopped chocolate on bain-marie. When fully melted add the soy milk and the other ingredients. On low heat, mix everything until well combined. Remove from the heat and place the chocolate mixture above a bigger bowl full of ice. Wait 5 minutes, it should get silky and have a thick texture. YUM!
- For the frosting, you'll need any vegetal milk, soy milk, almond milk or at milk.
