Spiced Beetroot Cake

This luscious Spiced Beetroot Cake is a favourite Cake of the Day.

The beetroot keeps it moist and the cinnamon keeps it smelling so good. The recipe makes two cakes to sandwich together as in the pic. Put them together with your favourite icing or ganache. We use a cream cheese icing which we also ice the top with.
