Really? There are beets in a chocolate cake? You bet! Not only do cooked beets make chocolate cakes look even more chocolatey, thanks to the deep color they lend to the batter, but they also contribute (in a good way) to the flavor and texture. Rest assured: You don't detect the flavor of beets when you eat this cake; rather everyone will be wondering why the cake is so singularly delicious.
