    CongoGirl's Note:

    I came up with this recipe as a way to use the fresh beets I get in my CSA box. It tastes just like zucchini bread to me, but it's a pretty pink color because of the beets.

      I have never liked beets. They taste like dirt to me. I tried this recipe to see if I could find a way to make beets taste good. The bread came out a beautiful pink color and was very moist. When I ate the bread plain, I could taste the beets a little. If I put a spread on the bread, I couldn't taste the beets at all. I might try boiling the beets first next time to see if that reduces some of the earthy flavor.

      This is delicious! I had some light colored, Chiogga, beets that were already cooked that needed to get used up. Even though it called for raw, I took a risk and went ahead with the cooked beets and it turned out wonderfully! The lighter colored beets allowed me to call it "Zucchini Bread" to my kids. Served it to 4 kids under age 9 and all of them gobbled it up. Since I was going to call it Zucchini Bread, I added 1/2 tsp of cloves, similar to my Zucchini Bread recipe. And I threw in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips just to be sure :) Both were great additions. Thanks for a yummy way to use my beets that my kids will actually eat!

      Delightful! I used a grater to grate up all my small beets with the skins still on (I took off the root tails) and ended up with 2 cups, so I doubled the recipe and was able to make 4 small loaves. They were well received by family and friends! Quite tasty! Thank you!
