Beatnik Cake

Here's a recipe for a healthy cake that I tweaked.  Behold, Beatnik Cake!

1 cup canned beets (14.5 oz can), mashed
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased and floured cake pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely, then frost with cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Combine all with a mixer:

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick melted butter
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla
