You know, when it comes to baking cake I tend to get a little bit nervous come execution time. I just can’t help feeling anxious when I put that pan in the oven. Don’t even mention making icing. It’s either too thick or runny as…well..you can guess that part.
But this recipe is definitely one for the books. It is pretty simple despite having to roast the beets before hand, so it might take a little longer than your usual flour, egg, baking powder and sugar cake mixes.
The beetroot adds a lovely dark color to the brownie cake and I added some of its beautiful purple juices to the icing as well. A perfect treat for that special person this Valentine’s Day.

I hope the loved ones will enjoy this beetroot cake – it sure is such a colorful and mysterious veggie, don’t you think? Pairs perfectly with chocolate.
