      Delicious! Very chocolaty. No beet taste at all. Really moist and tasty. I used canned beets and added a few shakes of cinnamon, a teaspoon of Jameson whiskey (whiskey is great with chocolate! Try substituting it for water in your favorite boxed brownie mix... heavenly!), 1 teaspoon of chocolate extract, 2 Tbsp of Dutch Process cocoa (increased sugar by 4 Tbsp) and a pinch of cardamom. Cake tester came out clean after 25 min, but center was still gooey. Ensuring cake springs back when touched is a better test of doneness.

      If I could give this more stars I would! This is the best chocolate cake I've ever made. I used canned beets and added cocoa powder in addition to the melted chocolate. I was looking for a cake that would hold together when cut so I could make a kitty cake for my son's 4th birthday(I posted some photos). This cake held together using several shapes of pans and was still unbelievably moist and delicious!! I'll use this as my regular recipe every year. Thank you VERY much!! It was a hit with all the kids and parents too!

      Delicious! I had fresh beets in my weekly produce delivery box and wanted to try something new with them. This recipe was it. I roasted the beets in the oven (drizzled with a little honey) and then pureed them in the blender. I also melted chocolate chips (about 1/2 c melted) because I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate. It turned out great - and the kids loved it! They had no idea that beets were the secret ingredient in their "chocolate" cake.
