This vegan death by chocolate cake is the ultimate proof that vegans can have it all. No one will know this is any different than any other cake! Despite the name death by chocolate cake, no animals were harmed in the making!
Boil the beets whole until tender with a fork, this should take less than 20 minutes.
Once the beets are cooked, cut the beets into chunks and place in the bowl of a food processor. Puree, scraping down the sides as necessary.
Preheat oven to 350. Coat two 8-inch cake pans with cooking spray. Line with parchment paper (trace the bottom of the tin onto parchment paper and cut out so it just fits in the bottom) and spray again. Set aside.
Add almond milk, cream of tartar, 1 cup of beet puree, sugar, water, and vanilla extract. Beat together well.
Yields: an 8-inch 2-layer cake with about 1.5 cups of frosting
