    Kaarin's Note:

    This is super moist and I promise you that you won't feel like you're eating a vegetable! I've included Grandma's old fashioned boiled frosting, but buttercream frosting or a dusting of powdered sugar is also good.

      I needed to use my beets garden so thought I'd try this. I did not make the frosting and thought it was still good this way. Some people thought they could taste the beets after I told them what was in the cake but I could not. An Immersion blender was used to mash the beets. The only change I'd try will be to use applesauce for some of the oil. Made for *Zaar Cookbook Tag July 2009* game

      I've tried a couple of different beet cake recipes, and this is one of the better ones I've found. It's not quite true that you can't tell you're eating beets -- you can definitely taste them, but it's a muted taste, mixed in with chocolate. I always make cupcakes -- cook for about 20 - 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
