Raw vegan paleo beetroot chocolate mud cake.


Far out every time Carla makes a new Merrymaker sweet treat recipe I am like, this is the best one ever! But I swear this raw vegan paleo beetroot chocolate mud cake is the best one. It’s all kinds of magical yum. You will bite into it and you’ll make all kinds of noises coz it’s ah-freaking-maze-balls. I do tend to exaggerate sometimes but today, I am not exaggerating. Oh and also Carla took it to her yoga teacher training crew and they all loved it. So this cake officially wins the cake game. Thanks Sissy, love you! Em

Alright so the beetroot chocolate mud cake is vegan and paleo, this is also known as pegan. We wrote about the world of pegan over here. No, it’s not witchcraft or any type of religion. We swear we’re not trying to get you into a Merry cult, but we think our cult would actually be kinda fun. Haha. You. Must. Eat. Cake! This is a joke FYI.

Raw vegan paleo beetroot chocolate mud cake. YUM!


The only reason we had not made it yet was because of beetroot. We love beetroot but far out, how messy is it?! It’s a bit of a mofo veggie really. Your fingers get stained, it splats all over your clothes and then you freak out because you think the stains won’t come out. And they probably won’t.

BUT! You should 100% make this cake. It’s oh so worth it times a million. And don’t you worry about all those splats because we have beetroot tips for you!

Here are your options, you’re welcome! 

  • Find someone else to peel your beetroot. Tell them they get cake (cake bribes are ok). Vacate kitchen while they do this.
  • Wear an apron, yeah they actually do come in handy!
  • Wear an old t-shirt. This will become your beetroot t-shirt.
  • Probably wear old pants as well. You never know.

Ok, now go! Make the cake and go to delish heaven! Don’t forget to share your pics with us on social media. #GetMerry.

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla

Raw paleo vegan beetroot chocolate mud cake
Serves 16
Total Time
1 hr 30 min
Total Time
1 hr 30 min
  1. 350 g (12.3 oz.) beetroot peeled and grated
  2. 1 cup cashews
  3. 1 cup brazil nuts
  4. 1 cup cacao powder
  5. 1/3 cup rice malt syrup (or honey)
  6. 1/4 cup coconut flour
  7. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  8. 2 tbs. chia seeds
  9. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
  1. 1 cup raw cashews
  2. 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  3. 100 g (3 1/2 oz.) cacao butter melted
  4. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  5. 1/4 cup rice malt syrup or honey
  6. 2 tbs. nut butter
  7. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
  1. Line a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch) silicon slice tin OR use mini silicon moulds (we did).
  2. Place all the cake ingredients into a high power blender or food processor and whiz until smooth. This will take around 5 minutes (or longer if your blender is a bit poo... if it is poo, leave the beetroot out, blend, add the beetroot and blend again).
  3. Transfer the mixture into the prepared tin or moulds and place into the freezer for an hour.
  4. While you wait, get onto the frosting.
  5. Rinse out your blender, add all frosting ingredients (except the cacao butter) and whiz until smooth.
  6. Now add the melted cacao butter and whiz on slow speed until smooth and shiny.
  7. Once the cake is set, carefully turn out and spread delish frosting all over it!
  8. Slice and ENJOY!
  1. If you like, you can add the frosting to the top of your cake before you freeze, and freeze both layers. It's super yum like this! You can freeze this cake sliced and defrost when it's mud cake time. We recommend this so you don't eat it all at once 😀
