Beetroot and Chocolate CupCakes! What a combination!
A little healthy and a little naughty.
These cupcakes were filled with the nutritional value of beetroot, raw caster sugar, dark chocolate and eggs. And unfortunately the bad aka a standard cupcake mixture with a few extra bits.
On a scale of 1 (awful) to 10 (great) I would rate this recipe a 9 out of 10.
The texture was light and fluffy. The colour was deep red, which almost resembled a red velvet cupcake. The smell was AMAZING- it was like sweet and savory, almost like a muffin. The chocolate icing on top of the cupcake gave it that extra bit of sweetness which I loved.
So where did the recipe lose 1 point? The taste of the beetroot was a little to strong (for me personally). However whoever tried my cupcakes said that the taste wasn’t that strong. So it was probably just me.
DO NOT EAT IF YOU DON’T LIKE BEETROOT.
Also finely grating 3 beetroot bulbs took a while. If I were to make these delicious cupcakes again (highly likely) I think I would try the food processor. Saving myself some time
