Beetroot Cake by Jenny Awbery This cake is a spectacular crimson colour and is very moist. I promise it doesn’t taste like beetroot! You can substitute part grated carrot for some of the beetroot,  if you prefer. Heat oven to 180C. Sift together 200g self raising flour, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 1/3 cups brown sugar  In another bowl or food processor, thoroughly mix together 185g softened butter, 3 eggs and juice and grated zest of one orange Butter bottom and sides of 8” cake tin and stir in 2 cups grated raw beetroot and orange zest, pressed lightly into cup.  Pour beetroot mixture into flour mix and blend well. Glaze: Heat glaze ingredients in a small pan until melted and pour over top of hot cake. 3 tablespoons marmalade, juice of one orange, tablespoon of honey.

Bake for 50 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
