Author Melissa Breyer has put together a tasty recipe for a healthy cake that is infused with nutritious beets. While beets and carrots are both feature healthy nutrients, people are more likely to use carrots for baking. This recipe puts a spin on the classic veggie cake by swapping grated carrots for grated beets.

This recipe is fairly easy to make and follows general guidelines that are used for making a traditional carrot cake. However, instead of using carrots, Breyer manages to sneak about two cups of grated beets into the cake batter. Despite the hearty serving of vegetables, the cake does not have a distinct beet flavor. Rather, the dessert is moist and fluffy, with a subtle and earthy flavor. The dessert is then finished with a creamy goat cheese frosting, which gives it an added touch of sweetness.

This healthy cake recipe is ideal for health-conscious foodies, as well as children who may be adverse to eating raw veggies on their own.
