This past Spring we got a ton of beets (I know you are wondering why I bring up beets in a post about cake, hang on I’ll get to it) from our farm share. I tried several different recipes to use up the beets, turns out we are not really beet people. I finally found one recipe that we love the beets in, yea that’s right it is a cake recipe. (I make a cream cheese frosting for the top.) It is a big hit with Matt and the neighbors! Well any cake is a big hit with Matt, but that’s beside the point. It is fun to see the looks on peoples’ faces when I tell them I am going to make a cake out of beets, most are resistant even though Matt goes on and on about how good it is. (Seriously he is the one that wanted me to post about it.) It isn’t the healthiest way to eat our beets, but at least we aren’t just composting them!
