Beetroot Chocolate Cake / Čokoladni kolač sa ciklom

Today is my mom’s birthday (Happy birthday, mom! ❤ :* ) and she asked if I’d make her a cheesecake that she could take to work for her co-workers. Of course I obliged, but I decided that she also needs a chocolate cake to have on her. I secretly sneaked beetroot in there, making it a bit healthier and not so decadent.

I’ve tested this recipe on my own co-workers a week prior. Sure enough, none could tell there was a beetroot hiding in there and all praised the cake to be very tasty.

Danas je mojoj mami rođendan (Sretan rođendan, mama! ❤ :*), pa me zamolila da joj napravim čizkejk da počasti kolege na poslu. Naravno da sam prihvatila, ali sam zaključila da joj za svaki slučaj treba i čokoladni kolač. Potajno sam u njega podmetnula ciklu, da bude mrvicu zdraviji i malo manje dekadentan.

Ovaj sam recept prošli tjedan isprobala na svojim vlastitim kolegama. Nitko nije ni posumnjao da se u kolaču skriva cikla i svi su ga nahvalili da je jako ukusan.

SASTOJCI:

(17,12 kn)

2 cikle srednje veličine, skuhane i oguljene (2,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice jogurta (1,00 kn)

3 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (2,25 kn)

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

4 žlice šećera u prahu (1,00 kn)

4 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

½ žličice praška za pecivo (0,05 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

3 reda tamne čokolade, nasjeckane na manje komadiće (5,00 kn)

Ulje ili maslac za namastiti posudu za pečenje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 170°C. Namastite plitku posudu za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Usitnite ciklu u multipraktiku. Dodajte jaja, vaniliju i jogurt pa propulsirajte da sve bude kremasto. Na kraju dolijte rastopljeni maslac pa pulsirajte da se sve sjedini.

U zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, šećer, kakao, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu i sol. Prelijte mokre sastojke preko suhih i miješajte dok ne nestanu sve grudice. Preselite smjesu u pripremljenu posudu za pečenje te po vrhu raštrkajte komadiće čokolade. Također možete i malo utisnuti čokoladu u smjesu.

Pecite kolač 30 minuta, dok štapić umetnut u kolač ne izađe skoro sasvim čist. Poslužite ohlađeno ili na sobnoj temperaturi, skupa sa sladoledom od vanilije ili šlagom i svježim bobičastim voćem.
