The magic is here. This week we start with something sweet and healthy. That is why we have prepared for you a sweet treat in the form of a beetroot brownie. Get to work and don’t forget to post the picture here – so we can admire the masterpiece.

Ingredients for beetroot brownie

  • 250 g butter (you can use clarified butter)
  • 250 g dark chocolate (70%), chopped
  • 200 g powdered sugar or any equivalent
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 250 g cooked or baked beetroot (unsalted), peeled and finely grated
  • 100 g chopped nuts (optional)

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

  1. Mix the flour and baking powder together and put aside.
  2. In a pot melt the butter (on low heat/flame). Then add the chocolate and stir from time to time until it is almost melted together put it aside and mix it to form a smooth chocolate sauce. Lightly cool.
  3. In a separate bowl mix eggs and sugar with a whisk. Then add the chocolate sauce (it might be warm) and mix until it’s smooth.
  4. Add the dry mix (flour+baking powder) to the chocolate sauce and stir it until smooth.
  5. At the end add beetroot and vanilla extract and mix until it is all incorporated together.
  6. You can also add nuts to give the brownie the extra texture (we used walnut but any other nuts will be great as well).
  7. Bake it in a form 18 x 28 cm layered with baking paper in temperature of 170ºC for about 20-25 min (the smaller the form the longer you should bake it for). Just to be on the safe side use a wooden stick to check if the cake is ready – the stick can be moist but the batter should not stick to it.
  8. Take out, cool down, cut and voilà!

In order to make it gluten-free (yes we did that option as well) just switch the flour and baking powder for the gluten-free option and it will be as amazing!
