    Are there chunks of beets in the finished cake? How best to prepare the beets to be added to the recipe such as shredded, chopped or otherwise.

    Thank you.

      Hi Lisa. In the recipe instructions it says to blend the beets in a blender so there won’t be chunks in the finished cake. How the beets are prepared isn’t important just that they are steamed so they can be blended.
