  3. Place beets in a blender and puree until smooth. Measure out 1 cup.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Spray 1 large loaf pan with cooking spray.
  6. Mix whole wheat flour, unbleached flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  7. Stir 1 cup beet puree with 1/2 cup water together in a bowl.
  8. Beat sugar and margarine together in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer on low speed until blended.
  9. Beat eggs and beet mixture into sugar mixture until combined.
  10. Gradually stir flour mixture into wet ingredients, mixing after each small addition, until just combined.
  11. Fold walnuts into batter until evenly incorporated.
  12. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  13. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes.

Since we don't get golden beets here, I used the purple kind. I used only whole wheat flour, and subbed honey for the sugar. I baked it in a pie pan, and it only took 30 minutes! My family finished this in no time! When (if) golden beets ever become available here, I know I'll have to try this recipe with them! Until then, I'll make this with the purple beets again! Thanks for the recipe!

This is good. I like the taste of beets, but their flavor is pretty much lost in this, so I think even non-beet fans would like it. I used purple beets since that's what I had. I also used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup honey since I did not have turbinado sugar. I omitted the nuts. I wish I had checked the bread at 50 minutes b/c it burned on the edges a bit at 55 minutes.

I happened to have 3 leftover golden beets and didn't know what to do with them since I do not care for the taste. This recipe was a great way to use them! The bread tastes like beets but is yummy! I added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 1 tsp vanilla for some flavor. I also added the water from cooking the beets to the blender to make the mixture smooth, not have to add water later, and retain the nutrients lost from cooking. My 18-month-old daughter also approves.

The flavor of this was fine, but nothing spectacular. I did add a little almond extract, some cinnamon and nutmeg, and if I make this again, will increase those. This recipe will be good to have on hand if there is a bumper crop of beets, but nothing to go out of your way for.

It turned out great. Moist, nice golden color. Different but yummy tasting.
