Rosa centifolia can bring us a deeper level of healing that work on more subtle aspects of our Being. Not only do they heal the physical body, but they extend into our energetic auras and resonate at a healing frequency that work on our emotional and spiritual body.

Like all of the Wild Bloom offerings, this blend is 100% organic, ethically sourced, unprocessed, unsprayed, non-irradiated, raw, and without any added flavours, colours, additives, excipients, or preservatives. I really couldn’t ask for more!

Rose teaches us to maintain an open, full, and strong heart – just like the soft, delicate, heart-shaped flowers – yet to maintain proper boundaries, like her sharp thorns. Ruled by Venus, Rose helps us to stay open-hearted in all of our relationships; including our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to nature.

Chocolate Cake With Beetroot Rose Frosting Recipe

EQUIPMENT

  • cake pan
  • unbleached parchment paper
  • food processor

 

INGREDIENTS

Chocolate cake batter:

  • 1 1/4 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup activated almond flour or activated nuts/seeds of your choice
  • 3/4 cup Wild Bloom Botanicals raw cacao powder
  • 2 tsp Wild Bloom Botanicals chaga & reishi powder
  • 1 tsp non-aluminum bicarb soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped beets
  • 1 cup raw grass fed goat yogurt or milk/yogurt of your choice
  • 1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup more or less, to taste
  • 1/3 cup virgin cold-pressed coconut oil or raw grass fed butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup spring or filtered water

Beetroot rose cashew frosting:

  • 3/4 cup raw activated cashews, soaked and drained soaked overnight or at least 2 hours
  • 2 tbsp virgin cold pressed coconut oil or raw grass fed butter
  • 1 full dropper Wild Bloom Botanicals rose tincture
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup more or less, to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped beets
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2-4 tbsp spring or filtered water or more, as needed
  • schizandra powder and/or dried flowers, chopped chocolate, fresh berries or goji berries to garnish

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Chocolate cake batter:

  • Make the chocolate cake batter. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place parchment paper into the bottom of an 8×8 inch cake pan, folding the edges over to secure the paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: buckwheat and almond flour, Wild Bloom Botanicals cacao powder and chaga reishi powder, bicarb soda, and sea salt. Whisk to combine. To a food processor, add the wet ingredients: beets, yogurt, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla bean, and water. Blend to reduce into an even paste. Add the dry ingredients and blend to a batter, making sure not to overmix.
  • Scrape out the batter into the cake pan and slide the pan into the oven. Bake for 20-23 minutes, or until a toothpick emerges clean when inserted into the center. Let the cake cool completely while you make the frosting.

Beetroot rose cashew frosting:

  • Rinse out the food processor. Place the cashews, coconut oil, rose tincture, maple syrup, vanilla bean, lemon juice, beets salt, and water, and blend for several minutes until the mixture is reduced into a fine paste, stopping to scrape down the sides or redistribute bits of cashew if necessary. Add some more water to thin out as needed – just don't make it too watery.
  • Scrape the mixture out into a small bowl, then spread it over the cooled chocolate cake. The frosting will be nice and thick, so let it drip over the sides of the cake as you spread it. Place the cake in the freezer for about 20 minutes to harden off the frosting. Remove, slice, serve and devour!

 

NOTES

  • If you don’t want to use almond flour, feel free to use an equal amount of any other activated nut or seed you can find that can easily be blended up in the food processor. You could even use cassava flour, coconut flour, or another gluten free flour, if you like. Use the ingredients that make you feel best.
  • If you’re watching your blood sugar or don’t like to use sweeteners, reduce or completely omit the maple syrup if you like. The cacao, vanilla and even cashews have a natural sweetness that’s great on their own, and if you use coconut flour instead of almond flour, that will also enhance the natural sweetness. I’ve even tried this with 2 pitted Medjool dates blended evenly into the batter and the resulting sweetness was good enough for me. Do not use straight up sugar, though—that’s foul.
  • Store unused portions for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
  • For longer term storage, place in a sealed glass or silicone container in the freezer for 3-6 months.
