beet cake with cream cheese icing

September 2009

Because I love beet tops so much, we had a LOT of beets in the fridge. I had a hankering for carrot cake but no carrots (too many beets taking up all the room). So I replaced the carrots with beets to make the most wonderful cake! (...not to be confused with beet cakes, aka fritters)

Remarkably, beet cake is NOT coloured red. It looks more like a dark gingerbread. The cake tastes pretty much like carrot cake. A little darker in flavour, perhaps. Darker or not, it's delicious.
