Chocolate Beetroot Cake

This is a deliciously moist cake with hidden beetroot! It has a slight bitterness to it from the beetroot making it taste like a dark chocolate cake, which is paired well with the sweet chocolate buttercream. It has a similar aftertaste to a red velvet cake but is more chocolatey in colour (and I already have a red velvet cupcake recipe).
I won’t lie, but this did NOT get past my husband and brother with the taste test who are uber conservative chocolate eaters – I think they felt betrayed that I got them to taste this before admitting there was beetroot in there! However for the more adventurous eaters, like the ladies in my family – who love this, and  for the kids who don’t know any better (the boys loooooove this and can’t get enough)!!! If you can get past a can of beetroot in there, this is a really moist cake which isn’t overly sweet. It can be easily made into cupcakes.
