This is the recipe I make a lot of during winter when fresh beetroot is plentiful. It sounds weird, but it's delicious. Even my "No-veges" friend loves it!
- 2 cups superfine sugar
- 1½ cups canola oil
- 4 medium eggs
- 2 cups mashed beets
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons salt
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- vanilla extract

The sugar, oil, eggs mix looks a bit off putting, but I promise you it's all worth it in the end. I also have a really yummy chocolate fudge frosting recipe that goes really well with this cake.
