  • Puree beets in a food processor or blender until the consistency is smooth and no lumps remain. Add eggs and blend for a few seconds more.

  • Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda together in a separate bowl with an electric mixer. Mix in butter. Pour beet puree into the bowl while mixing on low speed to combine. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack and cooling completely.

This recipe didn’t call for oil and therefore my cake was very dry! I’ve learn to read other peoples suggestions or comments. Read More

This is an interesting recipe and I tried it out of curiosity. My husband and I think it's very good. It wasn't dry, but it's very dense, sort of like cheesecake. I used a very light, fluffy chocolate frosting. I had to bake it about 5 minutes longer than the recipe says. Only changes I made were to add about 1 tsp. vanilla and reduce the sugar amount to 1-1/2 cups. I will make this cake again! Read More
