    Red Velvet Torte Red Velvet Torte

    I’ve eaten so many beets this week, I’m peeing pink. Red Velvet Torte Red Velvet Torte
    For a good cause, of course. I wanted a recipe for a red velvet torte that is flourless and uses beets. This torte is moist, sweet and chocolatey. And dark red.

    I have a recipe for red velvet cupcakes using coconut flour in my coconut flour cookbook, if you’re looking to use some coconut flour and create something more cake-like.

    Warning: you may have shades of pink on your fingers and tongue when you’re done with this one. I recommend wearing an apron when peeling and prepping for this recipe to prevent beet staining.

    1. I would like to try this recipe. It sounds interesting and looks delicious. I’m curious, does the beet flavor come through or does it just add bulk/texture to the cake?

        Most of the flavor is from the cocoa. There is a subtle beet flavor. I’ve found the more cocoa I add the less beet comes through. Or inversely, you could add a bit less beet, if you’re adverse to tasting the beet. The texture is more like a brownie than a cake. Hope that helps.

      Quick update: I stored my torte in the refrigerator all day, and then had a slice and I don’t taste the beet flavor at all.

      My mom made this for me as a birthday treat, so delicious!! Reminded me of a dense brownie. Definitely satisfies that chocolate craving. Thank you!!

      Beets are one of my favorite veggies! I try to bake healthy desserts for my little man, and he loves red velvet cake.
