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 :Dchacha in New York loved it

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...morejolielives in The Catskill Plateau loved it
