It is beetroot cupcakes, actually I wanted to make red velvet cupcakes, but I dint want to use red colour. I decided to use beetroot to get the natural colour I don’t know where or what went wrong the colour was not what I had expected to be, hence the name change. Only the colour was not what I wanted, but the taste was very good, the cupcakes were moist, fluffy and airy like cakes with eggs.

Once done just check if it’s done by insetting a tooth pick, if the toothpick come out clean its baked fully if the toothpick does not come clean then bake for few ,more minutes, then it’s ready to serve.

Notes

For making beets puree, clean the beets cut it into small pieces and microwave it with little water for 10 minutes or until soft, once its cools down grind it into fine paste, and it’s ready to use.

I think if I had added only one tablespoon of coco powder the colour would be at least some light red, maybe next time.
