Moist Chocolate-Beet Cake

Beet greens have been eaten since 200 BC in northern Africa and along the Mediterranean, but it wasn’t until the ancient Romans that the beet was cultivated for its roots. Highly popularized as a source of sugar in the 19th century by Napoleon—when the British restricted France’s access to sugar cane he decreed that beets should be grown as a source of sucrose—they are still widely cultivated in Eastern Europe for producing table sugar today.
