Default Beet Chocolate Cake

Wow . . . so sorry for the delay on this! I just got into the flow of life and kept swimming there for a while . . .

Beet Chocolate Cake (from Zephyr Community Farm)
* I'd try to use non-GMO sugar, flour, oil

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3-4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 eggs
1/4 cup oil
3 cups shredded beets

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease two 9-ince cake pans (I used a 9x13 sheet cake pan). Whisk dry ingredients together. Melt chocolate very slowly over low heat (or use a double boiler). Cool chocolate; blend thoroughly with eggs and oil. Combine flour mixture with chocolate mixture, alternating with beets. Pour into pan(s). Bake until fork can be removed from center cleanly, 40-50 minutes.

The result is a light inner texture and a slightly crisp outside (haha! I just realized this could be a description of my personality!). Even our 16 year old ate some and enjoyed it!

Namaste from the sunny Midwest!
