I checked out my favourite recipe resource, Taste Spotting, and found some likely candidates. Then I googled, and I have no idea how I got to this recipe, but this is the one I used: Ross Burden Chocolate Beet Cake. I used my Kugelhopf pan and baked it for about 43 minutes. Turned out perfectly. As always, I topped it with my ganache. (I so dislike a super sweet icing on my cakes; the ganache is perfect for almost every cake!) I steamed the beets, cooled them a little then pureed them with my stick blender. Worked perfectly.
We’ve kept trying a piece to see if we can taste the beets and we cannot. But we keep checking. heh.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to stretch the (leather) pen loop on my Filofax. I love it, but the loop is too narrow for my favourite pens. After it stretched out over night, my Uni-ball Signo 207 pen did fit in there, but after a few hours I couldn’t get it out. It shrunk back to its original dimensions. Back to the drawing board.
Slowly plodding along on those Noro socks! It’s smooth sailing down to the toe decreases now.
Poopers are fine; we haven’t had any thunderstorms for a few nights and Ava pretty much slept through the vehicle being stolen and rolled on the street a few houses down yesterday at 4 a.m. We didn’t but she did!
