Chocolate-beetroot cake

I some ago stumbled over a cake recipe, which was a combination of chocolate and beetroot, which I found to be a very interesting combination of vegetables in sweet cake.

So when I received a BIG portion of beetroot, it was time for me to bake such chocolate-beetroot cake. The original recipe, which I stored in unknown place, could not be located, so I went searching for another suggestion, and I here I found this recipe on beetroot-chocolate cake, which I made no modifications to.

Chocolate-beetroot cake is really love or hate cake, where is no in between !!!! I love this, but some of my work colleagues had their worst cake experience every in entire life !!!!
