Fudgy Chocolate Beet Cake

Recipe photo courtesy of Jonathan Lovekin

You won't taste the pureed beets, but they make this cake extra-moist and fudgy, even with the addition of whole-grain spelt flour. They also play up the cake's full-bodied, not-too-sweet flavor. This recipe appears in our cookbook, "A New Way to Bake" (Clarkson Potter).
