Dear SOS: Your recent article about beets reminded me of the wonderful beet cake recipe with delicious icing you printed years ago from Gorky’s Cafe. I can’t seem to find it. Could you please reprint it?

DEAR HENRY: What a pleasant reminder. Gorky’s, a one-of-a-kind restaurant catering to people in the downtown Los Angeles garment district, also attracted food lovers from everywhere. Beet cake was one of the major attractions. We updated this version by adding powdered sugar to the frosting to make it sweeter.
