    Beetroot is transformed! The flavour disappears, but the vegetable gives this cake incredible moisture... Recipe taken from Abel & Cole Organics newsletter.

      Very easy to make. It works exactly as stated. The first day you can really taste the beetroot, which is fun, but after that it becomes more like a rich chocolate cake. Two for the price of one! Thanks for posting.
