Ingredients

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each, baking powder and baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1 cup (250 mL) coarsely chopped peeled beets (1 large)
3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (175 mL) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup (250 mL) milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup (75 mL) butter, melted
1/4 cup (60 mL) plain yogurt (not fat-free)
2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla
Icing sugar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line an 8-inch (20 cm) square metal cake pan with parchment paper or foil; butter foil (if using).

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a blender or food processor, combine beets, sugar, cocoa powder and milk; purée until fairly smooth. Add eggs, butter, yogurt and vanilla and purée until incorporated. Pour over dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon just until moistened.

Spread into prepared pan, smoothing top. Bake for about 50 min or until a tester inserted in centre comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Let cool in pan on rack for 15 min. Using paper to lift cake, remove from pan and place on rack to cool completely. Serve dusted with icing sugar.

Tips

When working with beets, wear rubber gloves to prevent staining of your hands, or rub with lemon juice to remove the red colour (this works on cutting boards, too).

Tip for Kids: Cut this cake into fun shapes to decorate for a birthday or special occasion. Square cakes can be cut into race cars, flowers, lakes, teddy bears, balls and numbers for their age or decorated like a soccer field, baseball diamond or a swimming pool.

Variations:
Add 1 tsp 5 mL) chipotle pepper powder with flour mixture.
Make a quick chocolate frosting; melt 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) chocolate chips and stir with 1/2 cup (125 mL) sour cream; add 1/4 tsp (1 mL) chipotle pepper power, if desired.
