Yield: 6

Author: Dayna Hoskin



  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

  1. Grease pie dish thoroughly and set aside.

  3. Place white sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl, then sift in plain flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
  4. Use a whisk to mix the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  5. Create a well in the centre of your dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk, vegetable oil and food colouring. Bring ingredients together with a spatula until your cake batter is an even colour and texture.

  7. Combine brown sugar and Spiced Beetroot Mix in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a whisk until evenly combined.
  8. Sprinkle the entire beetroot mixture evenly over the surface of your cake batter.
  9. Boil the kettle, then take a large dessert spoon, turn it upside down and slowly pour 1 1/2 cups of boiling water over the beetroot mix.
  10. Move to the oven to bake for 35 - 45 minutes or until your cake is dry and spongy all the way to the centre.
  11. Serve warm with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and a scoop of ice-cream

The Final Product!


#1) It’s important to slowly pour the boiling water over the back of a spoon to ensure it lands on the pudding gently and sits on top of the batter. As the pudding cooks, the sauce will start to sink.

#2) That's it, seriously it's an easy recipe!

Again, huge thanks to Dayna and Hoskins Hens for putting this one together! Get on it and give it a go for yourself - we'd love to see how it goes and what you think of it!
