Beet Stem Cake

“I don’t see why a person couldn’t add a handful of diced pears, cubed apples, you name it – maybe even swiss chard. This recipe is easy to use and creates a cake that tastes of Christmas. It also has worked a treat as a breakfast slice, instead of a granola bar. Somehow I believe that if my great-Grandma saw me using beetroot in cake, she’d be very pleased. In regard to this recipe, I did find that the batter needed a little longer time in the oven.”
