  • 2 large beets, peeled
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, at least 60% cocao

In a medium saucepan, cover the beets with water by an inch.  Place the pot over medium high heat and bring the water to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium and simmer the beets until they are soft enough to easily be pierced through the center with a knife, about 25 minutes.  Drain the beets and puree them.  You may need to add a tablespoon or two of water to the beets to get them to puree smoothly, Add only what you need.  Set the beet puree aside to cool.
