Preparation

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a 9 inch round cake pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten free flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together.
Add the organic canola oil, beet puree, water, and apple cider vinegar. Mix batter by hand.
Pour batter into prepared cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan for about 25 minutes, then run a knife around the edges of the cake and invert the pan to remove the cake.
Allow cake to cool completely before frosting.
To make the frosting, combine the avocados, maple syrup, and cocoa powder in the food processor. Process until very smooth. Taste it, and add more maple syrup if needed.
Frost the cooled cake and then store the frosted cake in the refrigerator.
NOTES
To make beet puree, peel and chop one or two beets. Place in a pan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook until beets are tender, about 20 minutes. Let beets cool, then place in a food processor with 1-2 tablespoons of the beet water. Process on high until smooth.
