Several moons ago, a group of yoga lovers met a deliciously decadent chocolate cake. Now this was no ordinary cake; it contained a secret ingredient. Any guesses? Before I reveal this mystery ingredient, bakers have long known the benefits of adding various vegetables to their baked goods. This mystery ingredient was no different. Rich in red color, slightly sweet, and when added to baked goods...well the moist texture that results is heavenly! Have you guessed it yet? Yes, it's the red beet, and the recipe is a most delicious Chocolate Beet Cake...EVER! Now, I don't know Julia over at the Roasted Root but I do know her gluten free Chocolate Beet Cake. This recipe is spot on! Whether you require gluten free or not, it will not disappoint. The recipe suggests a sprinkle of coarse sea salt or a little home made whip cream. I like to spice it up and sprinkle with a little cayenne powder or a drizzle of caramel.
