How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Arrange rack in the center of the oven.
  • Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with non-stick foil.
  • In a medium bowl, measure flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Puree drained beets in a food processor or heavy-duty blender. Scrape into a large bowl.
  • Add sugar, vegetable oil, and 1/2 cup reserved beet juice to the pureed beets and mix on medium speed until combined.
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract, blending until completely incorporated.
  • Add flour mixture to the beet mixture. Using medium speed, mix until combined, at least two minutes, scraping down sides often.
  • Add melted unsweetened chocolate and mix until combined.
  • Pour into baking pan.
  • Distribute chocolate chips evenly over the top of the batter.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Do not over-bake or it will become dry.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • This cake is moist and delicious without any topping.
  • However, if you would like to dress it up, you may sift powdered sugar over the top or frost with your favorite icing.

    At first I thought, "You've got to be kidding me?!" Then I remembered why I enjoy GR so much. Chocolate & Beets are 2 of my favorite foods. To now have a recipe with both of them in it has a topless (no ceiling) Yum factor & I'm disappointed that all I can give you is a 5. Wow, wow, wow & thank you. Will make soon:)

    I love this recipe and why? Because I have baked it many times over. The one and only difference is that I grate the beets but I think I like your method better. This is very deserving of 5 FORKS :D
