On the hunt for a chocolate beet cake? So am I. We tried making a chocolate beet cake in a bundt pan.
When my oldest daughter got married they purchased their cake from a bakery in Sebastopol, CA. It was so pretty they chose a simply decorated cake. The cake had buttercream frosting with the addition of a few flowers added. It sat on a rustic wood cake stand made by my son.

Why am I telling you all this? Well, the cake they picked from their tasting was a dark chocolate beet cake with a filling that I have tried to make at home. I have been on the hunt for a chocolate beet cake recipe similar to their wedding cake ever since then.
Chocolate Beet Cake
The cake I am sharing was very good. But, it was denser than the wedding cake. Still, it was delicious. This cake was easy to make. The steps are simple. You can frost or glaze the cake if you want it sweeter.
I thought you might enjoy this for recipe Valentines Day! The cake has some unexpected flavor. Adding a naturally sweet addition to the cake. I could of mashed up the beets a bit more but, didn’t find it necessary. It would be a matter of preference.
Don’t have beet lovers in your home? You can finely mash the beets. They will never be the wiser when they eat it!
My hunt for the perfect beet cake will continue. I hope to find one a little lighter and not made in a bundt pan.
I hope you enjoy the recipe. I didn’t glaze or frost it but, you can and I have included where you can find the full recipe with the glaze topping below.

When baking, watch it so it doesn’t over bake. My oven runs hot and I took it out fifteen minutes earlier than the stated baking time. I would venture to say if you don’t have whole wheat flour you can try just white flour. I used the recipe just the way I found it. If I try it next time I might use a few more ounces of yogurt. I really think the key to getting the recipe correct all depends on your beet size and measuring too.
