Beet muesli cake – Vegan



In this recipe have used a unique combination of Muesli free from nuts (Oats, Barley, Rye flakes & Wheat flakes) with beet. Using Agave nectar makes this cake Vegan friendly too. Using Pear sauce and Museli are the variations tried in this cake.

Serves: 8
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 30- 35 minutes


  • Powdered muesli-3/4cup
  • Cocoa powder-1/4cup
  • Baking powder-3/4tsp
  • Salt -1/4tsp
  • Beet puree-1cup
  • Agave nectar-1/3 cup
  • Unsweetened pear sauce-1/4cup
  • Olive spread-2tbsp
  • Vanilla extract-2tsp
  • Chopped pecan nuts-1/2cup (optional) (alternatively walnut or any nuts can be used)


  • Pre-heat the oven at 180deg. Grease and line the cake tin/pan and keep aside.
  • Combine powdered muesli, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder in a bowl mix well, add in chopped walnuts toss and keep aside.
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler/ in a microwave.
  • Stir in melted chocolate to the beet puree, Agave nectar, olive spread, vanilla essence, pear sauce and whisk well until combined and smooth.
  • Stir in the flour- walnut mixture and mix slowly using a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35minutes/ until the tooth pick inserted comes out clear.
  • Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.


  • I used homemade beetroot puree and pear sauce.
  • For beet puree-finely chop beets, steam and blend to puree (approx. 2medium beets)
  • For Pear sauce – Peel, dice and deseed and cook them in boiling water until tender and soft. Allow it to cool down and then blend it in a food processor.
  • Oats powder/oats flour can also be used alternatively
  • Muesli I used here doesn’t contain any nuts/fruits-it is a mixture of oats, rye flakes, bran flakes and wheat flakes.
  • Vegetable oil/fat or butter can be used alternatively to olive spread.
  • Agave nectar can be added as per sweet tooth
  • Honey can also be used instead of Agave nectar
