I Like Big Bundts - Day #26

It's Day #26 of I Like Big Bundts!! Only 4 more days until National Bundt Day! I hope you have are planning your bundt making adventures! :)

It's 11-11-11! I just love that! I'm donating blood today at 10 am, then heading out for sushi at 11 am. I donate blood every 56 days (8 weeks) and during the last appointment, the nurse told me my next eligible date was 11-11-11. She added, "But the 11 am appointment is already taken!" I hope you do something fun today at 11 am!

My UCLA roommate from back in the day, Diane sent me this recipe to try out last year. I missed it last year so I made sure to test it for this round-up. The cake has beets and melted chocolate - the color is a very natural "red velvet".

This recipe uses pureed cooked beets. When I make this again, I will cook the beets a longer to get a nice smooth puree. I found these dairy, nut and soy free chocolate chips at Target.

Because my beet puree wasn't smooth (I don't like to eat overcooked veggies...but in this case, I should have steamed them a longer), I don't think my cake came out as planned. I like the idea of using beets for natural color and some sweetness so I'll have to try again!
