This single-serving Red Velvet Microwave Cake is made with a secret ingredient, shhh! And did I mention it's totally healthy enough for breakfast?


  • 61g (¼ cup) Roasted Beet Puree (see Instructions)
  • 3 tbs Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 8g (1 tbs) Ground Flaxseed
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Natural Butter Flavor
  • 26g (3 tbs) Sweet White Sorghum Flour
  • 1 tbs Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • 4 packets Natural Sweetener (stevia, Truvia, etc.)
  • tiny pinch of Salt


For the Roasted Beet Puree:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Rinse and gently scrub 1 medium beet, then wrap it in foil.
  • Place the beet on a pan and bake for 1 hour, or until a fork pierces through the center with ease. Carefully unwrap the beet and let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Scrape off the beet skin (they should peel off easily) and chop into chunks. Add the beet chunks to a food processor and purée until completely smooth.

For the Cake:

  • Spray 2 standard ramekins with cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the almond milk, beet puree, ground flaxseed, vanilla extract, and butter flavor.
  • Add in the sorghum flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sweetener, and salt.  Whisk until completely combined.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared ramekins and microwave them both for ~90 seconds, or until the surfaces spring back when tapped.  Let cool.  Serve with cream cheese frosting and shaved chocolate.  Enjoy!
