Have any of you ever heard of beet cake?
I hadn't. I hadn't even tried beets except for
those times when my mom would try to sneak it
into my juice and I completely hated it!
Until I ran across an amazing video
(that I will share with you) by a talented wife
and husband duo. It made me look at beets in a whole
new way. I am so thankful I saw this video
and I am totally happy that I tried the recipe!
- 1 c. butter, softened, divided
- 1 1/3 c. packed dark brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate
- 2 c. pureed cooked beets
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 2 c. a.p. flour
- 2 t. baking soda
- 1/4 t. salt
- confectioners sugar for dusting
Cream 3/4 c. butter and dark brown sugar.
Add eggs, mix well.
Melt chocolate with remaining butter;
stir until smooth. Cool slightly.
Blend chocolate mixture, beets and vanilla
into creamed mixture.
Sift together flour, soda and salt.
Add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
