This recipe highlights just how versatile your slow cooker can be. Moist and fudgy, this cake makes a sweet pick-me-up or a decadent dessert garnished with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle of dark chocolate shavings.
Steam beets until tender. Place in food processor or blender and pureu0301e until smooth. You should have at least 1 cup (250 mL) of beetroot pureu0301e. Reserve any remaining pureu0301e for another use.
Meanwhile, grease 5 quart (4.7 L) or 6 quart (5.7 L) slow cooker and line with large piece of parchment paper, allowing it to reach halfway up sides of cooker insert.
In large bowl, whisk together 1 cup (250 mL) beetroot pureu0301e with coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and eggs until well incorporated.
Sift together coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt over wet ingredients. With rubber spatula, stir ingredients together until well combined. Pour into prepared slow cooker and spread out evenly with spatula.
Cover and cook on low heat for 2 hours. Uncover and continue to cook for another 30 to 50 minutes, or until wooden skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove slow cooker insert and allow to cool completely on wire rack, about 2 hours.
Using parchment paper to help, unmould chocolate beetroot cake and cut into 12 slices. Cake may be refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days.
Tarts are timeless, and a good tart is always a people-pleaser. And who doesn’t love something with chocolate in any form? This classic tart is so easy to make with fresh fruit and hints of orange in a delicious chocolate crust. Once firm, it cuts like a dream into 16 easy slices. Fruity faves This remarkable tart lends itself well to a bevy of flavours. We conjoined raspberries with chocolate and orange in our tart. But you can stretch the boundaries with all sorts of fruits such as mango, pineapple, and papaya. If you’re longing to go somewhere tropical but the opportunity has scooted away, make this timely tart and fill it with the flavours of the tropics.
This cozy winter drink is perfect for sipping by the fireside. Serve it up with our Maple Pecans. It’s soothingly delicious and creamy served hot or cold. Plant milks We’ve suggested oat milk for an ultimate creamy beverage in our recipe. But any plant milk will be equally delicious. Other possibilities include unsweetened soy, almond, rice, and regular dairy milk products. Iced maple milk affogato A true Italian affogato is vanilla gelato or ice cream doused in espresso. In our version we place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass and douse it with our hot Dreamy Maple Sipper. Shave some dark chocolate on top and gratings of nutmeg. Serve with a tall spoon. Delicious!
Here’s the perfect recipe for a fireside snack attack. It’s so easy and can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the fridge or freezer without losing crispness. Delicious served with a hot toddy. Crunchy munchies Switch out pecans for Brazil nuts or walnuts, or even mixed nuts. The trick is to use raw nuts, as opposed to roasted, as these would become too toasted. Try playing with different spices such as cinnamon or curry powder. These are delicious served on crostini that’s been spread with our Creamy Feta Dip.
