YUM! I subbed banana extract for the peppermint and drained the beets as previously suggested. Also cut the oil in half by using applesauce. Very tasty!
Fantastic cake. My orange extract apparently is too old to have any flavour, but co-workers still devoured it like they were starved! ;-)
I have not had much success in baking with beets before, so I was quite wary when I first started. However, I had already started prep when I realized we did not have peppermint extract. The beet taste would probably come in too strong, so I randomly added some instant coffee and lemon zest, along with some chocolate chips. VERY nice. Thank you for sharing! :)
This cake is very, very good. I just changed 1 thing. I drained the beets (a friends advice)it was so moist and the other great thing,it freezes well.
