I've never use red food colouring for my red velvet cake. Always beet juice, and pulverized beets in the batter for moistness. All natural....and it works. Don't taste the beets at all.

Great idea! I was thinking making red velvet from scratch for my family, but did not want to do it because had to put a lot of color in batter.

I should have said CANED beets. Yo could use fresh, but the can already have he juice.

Caned beets? You get the juice out of beets by whacking them with a cane?!?

 

Or did you mean "canned beets"? <Emily Litella>Oh. That's very different. Nevermind.</Emily Litella>

Beets can have that effect too. You have to remember you've eaten them or you'll go to the bathroom and panic that it's blood. There's no way you can go back to sleep after an early morning bathroom trip following that kind of fright! (Done this a few times).

Anyway... I have made chocolate cake recipes that include beetroots for moistness and you can't even taste it.

Oops.....yes it's canned. Unless you do what to whack the crap out of the beet root....good exercise before chewing down on the cake.... icon_surprised.gif)

Beetroot? The very word reminds me of a line from an old Benny Hill song:

Now there’s a beetroot for the day you said that you’d beetroot to me

Raw red beets + raw carrot, make a salad. It`s a " stomach brush". We have sweets called "Peaches" because they look like peaches. Half ball made out of batter, baked, middles cut out and filled with dulce de leche. Then assembled together. One half dipped in fresh carrot juice, athother half in  raw red beet juice, then whole " peach" dipped in sugar.

Love those! Do you use a mold for the batter?

No mold, just make a ball out of batter, smash that ball against table or cookie sheet, so one side would be flat, place on cookie sheet, flat side down of course, bake and cut middle out.

Of course, that still leaves open what exactly we're making our balls out of: Shortbread dough? Pressed cookie dough? Refrigerator cookie dough? "Toll House" dough? Something else?

 

And if you see anything suggestive about this post, then you have at least as dirty a mind as I do.
