Ingredients for the Red Beetroot Sponge
- 80 g Raw Beetroot
- 80 g Coconut Oil
- 80 g 100% fruit Blueberry Jam
- 150 g Organic white self raising flour
- 25 g Desiccated Coconut
To make your fabulous Beetroot red sponge
Add the beetroot (sliced), coconut oil, and sugar free jam into a blender to start with. It needs to be a good blender, like a Nutrabullet or similar.
Then you need to use the blender to grind the mixture to a smooth paste.
Add this mixture to a bowl, and slowly add in the flour.
Now, make sure you beat the mixture well until it resembles a sticky dough. If you feel it is a bit dry, add almond milk to it.
Add the mixture to a SQUARE baking tray, which you have lined with paper.
Put in the oven at 180C for c. 20-25 minutes and when the mixture is firm to the touch.
Take out and cool on a wire rack.
Making the coconut sponge
Add the coconut oil, syrup, and almond milk into the blender this time. Again make sure it a robust one!
To soften all the oil, make sure you grind this mixture to a smooth paste.
Add this mixture to your bowl, and pop in the desicated coconut.
Mix in the flour carefully, and beat until the dough is sticky, as for the beetroot sponge. Again adding almond milk if you need too.
Put the mixture into another square baking tray with paper and bake at 180 C for 20-25mins again until the cake is form to touch.
Cool on a wire rack. Once cool, you just need to assemble the cake.
Assembling the Battenberg
Put the different sponges together using the jam.
Cover with vegan marzipan, again using the jam to stick it to the sponge.
