"Don't Knock It Until You Try It" Beet Cake!!

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by MizzNezz

Yes, this cake is made with beets! And you won't believe how great it is. I got the recipe from a friend who said it is the most requested cake in her family. Even the kids want it for their birthday cake. I baked it for one of our family gatherings and now, I get lots of requests for it too. The batter looks red, but the red bakes out. I use an almond flavored frosting on it sometimes. Other times I just serve it with homemade whipped cream.

Wonderful!!!! I am always trying to make something new. I thought this was the perfect b'day cake for my MIL (I was in charge of baking it for her b'day) It was out of this world. I will definitely make it again. The only thing I did different was add the zest of one lemon and use one cup of whole wheat flour with 1 cup of plain flour. This is definitely a keeper and I thank you for the wonderful addition to future birthdays. Cheers! Fay Almeida
