This is definitely one of the craziest recipes I have ever tried. Somehow, I got it into my head to make a cake with fresh beets in it. I researched a few recipes, I found one here on Spark Recipes but the quantities seemed wrong, so this is my version. I wanted to make a red velvet cake and the color of the batter after you mix in the beets is indescribably gorgeous. Unfortunately, upon baking the cake, the color fades to a golden color and loses most of it's red. (I add a picture of the bright red batter so you can see how it looks before it bakes). I used a bunch of red food coloring because I really wanted the look of a red velvet cake. Food coloring is optional, of course.
My husband says it is the best cake he has ever tasted. It is rich and moist and dense and you can't taste the beets at all, although they give the cake a distinctive taste. I didn't tell him until after he ate half of it that it had beets in it. He doesn't like beets, but he begs me to make this cake. Submitted by CAMILLE-LEON
