It was 2013 when I first made these Chocolate Beet cupcakes and since then it’s always been the only dessert that stunned me. Chocolate and Beetroot?? Whhaaaat? Vegetable in a chocolate cake? Noooooo! But it was all I could see everywhere I went, seriously, it was like a freaking invasion. It drove me crazy, and I just had to see what all the fuss was about.
I don’t know if its because of the beets, but these are such soft, moist, dense cakes! And no, you can’t taste the beets in there at all! So unless you go around telling people, it can be your own little secret. Shh!
