Cooking the Blues Away: Beet Cake

The days are shorter, the holidays are here, so I'm back cooking my blues away. I made this beet cake from tiger in a jar's video recipe I found over at designmom. It was a hit, and I loved the looks of shock when everyone discovered the chocolate cake was actually a beet cake.
You will want to watch this lovely recipe video, but here is a standard list of ingredients with my additions in parentheses:
Beet Cake
2 c. beets (pureed)
2 c. flour
1 1/2 dark brown sugar
4 oz. semisweet chocolate
2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt (kosher)
1 t. vanilla (Mexican)
1 c. butter
3 eggs
(dash powdered sugar)
(heavy cream whipped)
(mix ingredients together, bake for 30 minutes at 375)
(allow cake to cool, then dust with powdered sugar and serve with whipped cream)
