Red Beet Chocolate Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Rita~

You can use a jar baby food beets, canned beets in water that you pureed (NOT pickled) or roast your own beets then puree. You will be very surprised at how good this is. In taste and for your health. Beets are high in carbohydrates and low in fat. Containing phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, as well as fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, folic acid, and biotin.

My roommates and I enjoyed this recipe. However, it's very subtle in chocolate flavor and pretty oily. I would make this cake again but cut down on the oil and amp up the chocolate.
