Chocolate Beet Pudding Cake
Beets are a contradiction. When pulled out of the ground, they look like unappetizing, dirty round lumps. But when you cut one open, the intense purple-red color is almost shockingly beautiful. Beets are very healthy and highly versatile; you can eat them in soups and salads, roasted, sautéed, and fried... you can even use them in a cake! I used roasted beets for this recipe, and the result was a moist, reddish-brown cake that has a pudding-like texture when served warm. If you cannot wrap your mind around the notion of eating beets in a cake, feel free to substitute applesauce for a tamer, if less thrilling, snack cake. — Lea Hendry Valle, Sweet Paleo.
