On a recent episode of The Walking Dead, Carol made some interesting cookies with Acorns and Beets. It reminded me of the chocolate cake we used it have in school ~ It was so delicious and hiding inside was … you guessed it … Beets!
After you add the beets, it looks like maybe it curdled. But rest assured, all is well.
The final batter is a beautiful color. Dark cocoa colored with a hit of red.
Divided into two pans for a layered cake …
Once out of the oven and cooled, I used my new spatula. Man! Frosting a cake with it is SO MUCH easier!
A few party sprinkles on top and it’s ready to eat!
Try the recipe here and tell me what you think! (I think it can’t be “beet”!)
Mmmm! I’ve tried making red velvet cake with beetroot before and it turned out quite good, different but good. I can imagine this to be a yummy mouthful!

It was quite yummy – it had a richness that was a little different than a normal chocolate cake. Plus, it was fun to tell people it had beets in it! 🙂
