To be honest, I am a bit of a recent convert to desserts made with beetroot.
I remember the very first time someone offered me a beetroot cake. I thought they were a bit crazy. After all, there are desserts and then there are vegetables. At first, I said no thank you.
My mistake was thinking beets are only good in salads or on burgers. Little did I know that I was about to change my thinking forever.
After initially refusing, I remembered that I have had veggies in sweet treats before. After all, I love my sister’s zucchini muffins and carrot cake. Finally, wearing me down about baking with beets, I gave it a try.
An immediate about face as I was instantly in love with beetroot desserts.
