Sometimes it is not easy to find a good cake that is fluffy and also gluten free. This Thermomix flourless beetroot chocolate tart is like heaven on a dessert plate. You can serve it slightly warm just after you’ve baked it or cold with some fresh Greek style yogurt. I would highly recommend adding some whole nuts and pouring the batter into a square tin to make brownies. You will be the most popular person at lunch time, that is for sure. This cake does contain eggs but trust me, it is worth it.

This Thermomix flourless beetroot chocolate tart is the perfect dessert for anyone who loves making something sweet but cannot eat gluten or refined sugar. It is also dairy free and is one of the delicious recipes in my brand new recipe collection Supercharged
