  • Very good! The beet just melted into the cake. I used 1C buckwheat flour & 1/5C white, eggbeaters, and plain nonfat yogurt instead of creme fraiche (it's what I had). Turned out moist & slightly dense - which is how I like it! It also worked perfectly frozen as the base for an ice cream cake. - 10/15/12
