The dog days of summer are behind us, and warm days bring the summer's bounty into view while cool nights let us sleep comfortably. It's a great time of year to experiment with new recipes. Why not combine some of the fall harvest with our famous artesanal chocolates
This time of year beets are plentiful. This recipe will not only satisfy your dessert craving, but your will also have some of their vegetable portion for the day. Now, you can't beat that, can you?

1 1/2 C white sugar
1 C oil
2 C beets, peeled and grated
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 C white flour
1/2 C cocoa powder
1.5 tsp baking sugar
• In a mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar
• Add oil, beets, and vanilla
• Mix dry ingredients together, then add to the wet mixture, stirring just until moist
• Pou batter into a greased 9" x 13" pan
