"This is an old family recipe. Don't tell your kids the secret ingredient, or they'll make oogy faces. This is a very moist rich cake with a lovely color, and the frosting is wonderful."

1 3/4 cups
1 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/3 cups
beets, peeled and shredded
This was a recipe I'd been trying to track down for awhile (so happy to find it) You MUST use raw beets or the cake turns into muck. Excellent cake, very moist. Goes great with coffee. Served at a bridal shower and got rave reviews.

Did not like this recipe at all.
I found this cake to be very moist and tasty. My kids and husband all loved it. I have passed along this recipe to a few people and have good reviews as well. I used a cream cheese icing instead of this one though and it's good with or without icing.
Sadly, I was dissapointed. The ingrediants did NOT flatter each other very well, and moisture was lacked in this crummy recipe!

Sadly,I was dissapointed with this one.It sounded so promising and didn't turn out at all the way I hoped.
