My friend Erin brought over a whole bunch of goodies from her garden, including a bunch of beets. I love beets and usually just boil them and have them on hand to snack on or throw in a salad. Yesterday, I was online getting some food ideas for dinner and stumbled across the idea of a beet and chocolate cupcake. Here’s my take on this great recipe…You will be amazed at how moist the beets make this loaf and you will be shocked at the flavour. SO DELICIOUS!
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup Sunflower Oil
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup cooked and grated beets

I am really excited that Thanksgiving is coming up, it’s my favorite holiday and I will be heading to Northern Ontario to visit with family and friends. But first, I get to see Jesus Christ Superstar at the Stratford Festival! Just a thought, but you should WOW your people with this Chocolate and Beet cake at your Thanksgiving Festivities…
I am boiling delicious beets. Yum! Thanks to the fab Erin for delivering all sorts of goodies from her garden!
A very chilly but happy saturday happening here!
