Angie, so many things going on in this bread and they all sound delicious!

Jeff the Chef 28/11/18 05:29

How interesting! I've always wanted to make something with beets and cocoa. Does the red wheat contribute to the color? And then the raisins and walnuts - sure! But what's maple syrup doing in there? That makes it sound so intriguing.

noobcook 28/11/18 06:53

love this red themed bake for autumn. The loaf looks really wholesome and rustic.

Angie's Recipes 28/11/18 07:19

@Jeff Not really. The colour is basically just from beets. I also baked quick bread with just red wheat and the colour turned out very brownish.

Shashi at SavorySpin 28/11/18 11:07

Beautiful loaf and so tasty sounding too! Brilliant flavor combinations of beets + walnuts + milk chocolate + raisins!

What a wonderful looking bread, Angie! I've yet to try baking with beets but this recipe is going on my list to try!

Evelyne CulturEatz 28/11/18 22:47

Another incredible recipe, just so creative. True beets would keep it moist, like pumpkin puree. And such a lovely color.

Kelly | Foodtasia 29/11/18 02:42

Vicki Bensinger 2/12/18 02:13

Wow Angie this sounds wonderful! I bet the beetroot not only made the loaf moist but added a unique flavor to it. Did you love it? Would you make it again?

Jeff the Chef 2/12/18 16:57

@Angie Schneider In a way, though, that's even cooler that it's all from the beets. I love the color.

Emma @ Bake Then Eat 2/12/18 18:35

Beetroot and chocolate - a combination that I've just recently been introduced to and feel in love. It's so moist and flavorful just like the look of your beetroot loaf. Beautiful load!

Nammi 4/12/18 04:54

I always learn something new from you :). First time seeing ghee used in a cake.

Adina 4/12/18 09:46

It looks so deliciously moist. I often buy those vacuumed beets, use a couple for a recipe and always wonder what to do with the rest, except salad. This loaf would be a great way of using them.

tigerfish 4/12/18 23:19

Red wheat, red beetroot - what a nutrient-dense loaf!

Reeni 5/12/18 00:38

Once again, a recipe full of ingredients I would never buy at the store myself. Ha! I swear you need to go on IRON CHEF AMERICA because you would 1000% beat out all the iron chefs!

Ooh red wheat. You've done it again and wowed me with another ingredient I haven't come across before. Love it.
