    Chef Au Vin's Note:

    I saw Chef Tyler Florence make this on the View today and I think it's such a great idea to enjoy red velvet cake without all the red dye!

    FOR THE CAKE

    FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

    Directions:

    1. 1
      FOR THE CAKE:.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    3. 3
      Begin by lightly greasing tins with butter (oven proof ramekins or cocotte dishes work well). Peel beets and cut into pieces so they can fit comfortably in a food processor.
    4. 4
      In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. In a separate bowl, mix molasses, eggs, buttermilk, oil and sugar together. Now mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients and then fold in the processed beets.
    5. 5
      Place cake tins on a roasting tray. Divide batter amongst tins and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until they have puffed up and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
    6. 6
      Allow to cool and then frost with cream cheese frosting, layering the cakes on top of each other.
    7. 7
      FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:.
    8. 8
      Using a kitchen mixer, combine cream cheese and butter until blended and you have a smooth, light texture. Add the vanilla, lemon zest and powdered sugar and beat until combined. Continue to beat until smooth and glossy – about 7 minutes.

      Sister in law made this cake- it was yummy but very moist nearly dense! I'd eat it again! Better than food dye!
