Beetroot and beets is the same thing. Canned beetroot will be just fine.

It sounds like Devil's Food Cake, which also uses beet root. I made a similar cake a few weeks ago, with the beet roots and everything, and I was totally disappointed, because it was completely tasteless. I hope your recipe is better than mine :)

"Is there a difference between beetroot and beet? We can get fresh beets and tinned ones, but I don't believe I've ever seen anything labeled beetroot."

A fresh beet is a beetroot. They come attached to the stem in fancy grocery stores. Just cut off the greens, wash the roots, and toss them in the cuisinart, and oila, grated beet root. In cakes like these, their prime purpose is to provide coloring, as you'll note they have a deep purple color.

Wow - could this take the place of a traditional 'red velvet' cake? I love that cake, but it skeeves me just a little to use that much 'red dye #-whatever it is'!

Hmmm... Hang on... Ok, I can't find any confirmation on the color thing. My assumption that the beets are purely for color is just an assumption. Still, it makes sense; what else could they be for?

Sorry Kyles.

I will give you the benefit of the doubt since I never heard of such a cake before. I doubt I could even get beet root in my area.

But, thinking about it, I bet I cook some things you are unfamiliar with also.

I apologize.
