Beet Cake

A friend of mine saw this recipe and thought of me since I had been talking about beets so often lately.  I bet it’s good since a lot of veggies make good desserts like potato donuts, zucchini muffins, carrot cake…  The original is at but since links change and no longer are valid, I’m keeping it here so I can find it when it comes time to make it.
