Beetroot is lovely for adding into cakes. My friend gave me this recipe. I use it for making cupcakes. They made nice gift for friends.
Beat soften butter and caster sugar together with an electric mixer till light and fluffy.
Add in beaten eggs and then grated beetroot. Stir in melted dark chocolate. Fold in the flour.
Line a muffin tin with 6 cupcake cases. Spoon the mixture into the cases. Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes at 180C/Gas4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Beat the icing sugar and butter together with and electric beater till light and fluffy. Mix in a drop of pink colouring. Place the icing in a piping bag with a star nozzle. Pipe the icing on the cool down cup cakes. Sprinkle with grated beetroot and decorate with chocolate balls.
Chocolate chips can be used in the cake for extra flavour and texture.
