Steps

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Cut up the beets into medium size chunks and cook until soft, then puree in a blender or food processor. Set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

  3. Melt the chocolate and butter over a double boiler of simmering water until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool a little. Add the sugar to the chocolate-butter mixture, stir in the vanilla and coffee. Add in the eggs one at a time and then the beet puree. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, then gently fold in the coconut (if using) and half the chocolate chunks.

  4. Pour into a 8-in pan lined with parchment paper; top with cranberries and remaining chocolate chunks, then bake for 25-30 minutes. Do not overbake.
