Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter (or margarine, softened + 2 tbsp)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups all purpose flour (+ 1 tbsp)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 pound beets (cooked and mashed)
  • 1/4 pound almonds (roasted and coarsely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease and flour a 10 cup Bundt pan. Cream 1 cup + 1 tbsp butter, 1 cup sugar and the vanilla extract. Stir in the eggs, 1 at a time. Mix 3 cups flour with the baking powder and add to the batter, alternating with the milk.
  2. Divide the dough in 1/2. Mix 1/2 of the dough with the mashed beets and 1 tbsp of flour. Mix the other 1/2 with the chopped almonds and liqueur. Fill the prepared pan with alternating blobs of beet and almond dough. Run a fork through the mixture to create a marbling effect. Bake for about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 mins on a wire rack then remove from the pan and let cool completely.
  3. Caramelize 1/2 cup sugar in a small pan until golden then stir in 1 tbsp of butter. Remove from the heat and quickly drizzle the caramel over the cake. Leave it to set before serving.
