Beet Spice Cake

7 Aug

I shared that I had peeled grated some of the beets I got from my sister.  It really looked like a massacre in the kitchen.

I used them to make a beet spice cake!

The batter was such a pretty pink.

It came out of the oven looking like a nice cake–not a hint of pink at all.

I added cream cheese frosting.

It was delicious!  A spice cake.

You’d never know it was made with beets.
