This gluten-free Chocolate chip Beet Cake came about unintentionally today.

It is a rooty little cake, made with beets, potato starch, garbanzo an rice flour.

Yeah, cake, why not?

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until done. Done is just a little less time than I baked mine, mine is a little dryer than I like.

If you like, make pink frosting using some of the remaining beet juice. it would look great on this cake.

  But I prefer naked cakes – that’s what I say when I don’t want to make frosting.
