Beetroot Cake

Belated happy new year and pongal wishes to all my friends and readers.This is the first time that i took a long break in this one year of blogging.Went for a short vacation to my home town and it was short and sweet.Kids had a great time with ammamma(granny) and my sister family.Kid one cried a lot when we were coming back which i do very often and this time i controlled myself but kids couldn't.

This cake was supposed to go to mahima's event but i was away and didn't had net connection at mom's place.


Plain flour 1 cup

Beetroot 1/2 cup (grated)

Sugar 1/2 cup

Egg 2

Butter 1/4 cup

Baking powder 1 tsp

Salt 1/2 tsp

Almonds 5 (peeled and grated)

Milk 1/2 cup


Mix all the dry ingredients.

Beat egg until fluffy and add butter.Mix throughly.

Slowly add egg and grated beetroot in the flour.Mix throughly.

To get thick and pouring consistency add milk.Don't just add the entire milk,slowly add milk to get the proper consistency and if still milk is left just dont add it to the batter.

Spoon the batter into the tin (baking tin buttered and dusted with flour)

Sprinkle grated almonds and bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees in microwave convention mode.
