i don’t know what it is with me and beets…but adding them to baked good just makes me happy. remember this cake for my husbands birthday? and that was his second beet cake. the year before, i made him this recipe. he’s totally use to it by now. when i’m baking in the kitchen, he patiently asks, “what’s hiding in there this time?” but don’t let him fool you…i’ve totally converted him. we’ll have friends over and he’ll brag, “i guess you’ll never bet what’s in there…it’s good for you too!” bam. that’s right baby. keep preachin’.
