Our Sweet Science column expert, pastry chef, Eileen Gray shares this innovative recipe for chocolate orange beet cake. Eileen says, “It’s a moist chocolate cake made with pureed roasted beets, fresh orange and lots of warm spice. As if that’s not enough, it’s finished with luscious chocolate orange glaze.” She had me at the word chocolate, this gloriously moist cake paired deliciously with a hot cup of coffee and a copy of American Cake Decorating magazine.
The warm spices and the refreshing orange really boosts the delicious chocolate flavor of this intense cake. For Eileen’s recipe, head on over to her blog, Baking Sense- The Art and Science of Baking.
