Ingredients
Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups beet puree, 6-7 small beets
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Chocolate Ganache
Instructions
  1. Place beets in a large pot and cover with about 2 inches of water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes until beets are soft and can be easily pierced with a knife. Remove from heat, drain, and allow beets to cool for 15-20 minutes. Once cool enough to touch, remove skins and place in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 10" Bundt pan and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together beet puree, apple sauce, water, canola oil, and vanilla extract. Add the wets to the dries and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Transfer to prepared Bundt pan and bake for about 45-60 minutes, until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Flip out onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
  6. To make the Chocolate Ganache place chocolate chips in a small, shallow bowl. Heat coconut milk to a scald (you should see a skin form over the surface). Pour over chocolate chips and cover for 5 minutes. Gently stir together until the ganache is well combined and thickened. Pour over cooled cake and serve.
