FOR THE CAKE

  • 1½ cups Sugar
  • ¾ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¾ teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¾ teaspoons Espresso Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • ⅓ cup Vegetable Oil
  • ½ cup Milk
  • 1½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ¾ cup Boiling Water
  • 1 cup finely grated roasted beetroot*

FOR THE FROSTING

  • 12 ounces Grass-fed Butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla
  • ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 6″ round baking pans(or two 8″ round pans).
  2. Place the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and espresso powder in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the egg, oil, milk, vanilla, and water to the dry ingredients and whisk in just until smooth, Add the grated beet and stir in just until combined.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until puffed and firm on top and a tester inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few moist crumbs attached.
  5. Remove and let cool completely. Remove cakes from pans.
  6. Place the butter in a large bowl along with the vanilla and cocoa powder. Beat with an electric mixer until the vanilla and cocoa are well combined. Beat on low, adding the powdered sugar a few tablespoons at a time, until all of the sugar has been whipped in. Scrap the bowl down, turn the speed up to medium, and beat the frosting for another 30 seconds.
  7. Use frosting to frost between and around cake layers. Garnish as desired.
  8. Store covered at room temperature for a few days, or refrigerate for up to a week.

The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
