Cake is in the oven. I believe the beets (I used canned) will give it moisture AND sweetness. I also added peppermint extract as per Alix's suggestion.

Let you all know later how mine turned out.

Mmmmmmmmmmm. You won't be sorry. Add a teeny bit to any frosting too. Ours rarely makes it to the frosting stage as I tend to devour it before we can get the cake cool enough to frost.

Maybe I will make one today too. It is not as crappy as was forecast, but still overcast and grey right now.

waiting - waiting - for the review!

Just curious - anyone - have you made this with fresh grated beets? Just wondered about the difference.

Still waiting. The barbarians I live with did not want to eat the excellent salmon en croute tonite (hubby ate lunch too late and was not dinner-hungry and daughter wanted takeout Chinese, which I did NOT order for her - she's fixing ramen noodles as we converse here). Said salmon is in the freezer right now, and WILL be eaten tomorrow.

I am sure beet/choc cake will be eaten later this eve. Stay tuned.

Oh, Mudbug, I'm sorry - I know just how that feels! That's happened to me, too!

And I finally laid down the rule that I will 'announce' when I'm making a big 'do' for dinner - if anyone has plans, they should let me know beforehand; if something comes up last minute, I get a call to let me know!
