I omitted wheat germ and wheat bran, used 1 C oil + .5 C milk instead of 1.5 C oil, and 14 oz fresh, raw grated beets instead of canned.
I think the cake would be a lot better with the following changes: more sugar, less cinnamon plus other spices (maybe nutmeg and allspice), and vanilla extract. Some grated orange peel would be good, too. If you are using raw beets like I did, I would reduce beets and increase carrots. The beet flavor was dominant in mine.
