Beet Bundt Cake

Beet Bundt Cake

"I found this recipe handwritten in my grandmother's well-worn cookbook. I've made it many times, and my four grandchildren love it (they think it's just a moist chocolate cake). It's especially appropriate for this contest because our state is known as the beet-growing capital."

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream 3/4 cup butter and brown sugar. Add eggs; mix well. Melt chocolate with remaining butter; stir until smooth. Cool slightly. Blend chocolate mixture, beets and vanilla into the creamed mixture (mixture will appear separated). Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Cool completely. Before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.

I'm torn on this review. This cake was a lot of work, very tedious. It smelled amazing (well, until the end when it smelled like it was burning, but still gooey in the middle). My coworkers l...

OM MY! THIS WAS AWESOME! To save myself some time, I used three cans (15 oz.) of sliced beets and mashed them. It produced about 2 1/2 cups. I only used two cups as the recipe indicated. Th...

I love this recipe! I use only 1 c beets and 1 c grated carrots and/or zucchini. I find it helps hide the earthy aftertaste of the beets. Also, I use half whole wheat flour/half all-purpose, ...

This cake is miraculous. I used 5 medium sized beets. Boiled them, then pureed in blender using about 1/2 cup of the water from the pot. When the batter is mixed, it is a VERY bright magenta. Re...

I was very skeptical about the concept of beets in a cake (which is precisely why I HAD to try this recipe), but this was delicious. Very moist but still "dense". I halved the recipe (but still ...

this is an amazing recipe, I made 24 muffin cakes and they were so light and fluffy the best I had ever made, I added a few tablespoons of cocoa to the flour for extra chocolate, but that is jus...

This recipe is great. Instead of using a bundt pan I used several very small spring form pans and then gave each of my friends a tiny cake. I also split each cake in half and put raspberry jam...

Excellent! From 4 medium sized beets I got a bit less than 2 cups of mushed beets, so I will try with 5 next time. Very moist cake with a great taste. You could never tell there were beets in it...

This is an excellent recipe. Even my husband, who thinks that "beets are the worst thing to happen to the human race", still does not believe that there are beets in this cake. Thanks for a gr...
