The beetroot in this cake provides a lot of moisture and tastes delicious. Don't knock it until you've tried it! Leave yourself plenty of time to make this cake which is best eaten when it is still slightly warm.
This is a really lovely cake - very moist and delicious. However, I baked it in a savarin as in the photograph and after 2.5 hour baking it still hadn't baked through in the bottom. Result - half of the cake left stuck in the bottom of the mould. I will definitely try again but maybe in a standard round cake tin. - 14 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
