Chocolate Beetroot Cake

The first time I made this cake, it became one of my favorites. Humid, with rich chocolate flavor, perfect for cold days with a cup of tea. For all these reasons I decided to make THIS cake for dinner with girls tonight.

We meet every month at home of one of us and each one brings some homemade food. The food is always great but it is just a part of the greatness of these dinners. We gather, speak, laugh, share, and that's what makes it great. I use to come back home with full stomach and really happy {*smile}.

It will be a great introduction for the weekend, when we have to finish the Halloween preparations, which we enjoy so much.

What are your plans for the weekend?

A primeira vez que fiz este bolo, tornou-se um dos meus favoritos. Húmido, com o sabor rico de chocolate, perfeito para dias frios com uma chávena de chá. Por todas essas razões, decidi fazer ESTE bolo para o jantar desta noite com as meninas.

Reunimo-nos todos os meses em casa de uma de nós e cada um traz alguma comida caseira. A comida é sempre fantástica, mas é apenas uma parte da grandeza destes jantares. Estamos juntas, falamos, rimos, partilhamos, e isso é o que o torna grande. Eu costumo voltar para casa com o estômago cheio e muito feliz {*smile}.

Será uma óptima introdução para o fim-de-semana, no qual temos de terminar os preparativos do Halloween, de que tanto gostamos.

Quais são os vossos planos para o fim-de-semana?
