  1. Alas, none that I've found. The first time I ate it was in a California restaurant run by Bradley Ogden, the guy from Kansas City. Yummy stuff. (And not beet-y tasting, for the skeptics.)

    1. Hmm, just ate some beets. Interesting, is that an STL specialty?

      1. Nope. It's a recipe that's been around for at least 30 years, though. It seems to make the cake moister and richer. Beets are naturally sweet, like carrots, but unlike carrot cake, the beets seem to dissolve into the batter, although it could just be the similarity of color.
