Vegan Beets Cupcakes

IMG_3393

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.

This recipe is for keeps and its vegan what more can I ask for. This recipe is almost same like my other eggless recipes. I have just made few changes and the cupcakes were too good and no one will believe they were made without eggs,  but they are also dairy free and I love it, ok I don’t want to brag more  about the recipe, lets start making the cupcakes.

Now fill batter 3/4th, sprinkle the Chocó chips on top and bake it for 30 to 35 minutes in pre heated oven. 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.

Happy new year to all, I wanted to post something sweet for the first post of the new year, so thought of posting a vegan recipe.I am not vegan, but maybe in future I want to be vegan, so most of the time I keep checking vegan options most of the time. This is one of the best vegan cup cakes I have tasted. I have made this before but without frosting, but here I bought this vegan butter “earth balance” so I wiped it with icing sugar and frosted the muffins. It was divine I must say, so let start with the recipe.

Notes

If you don’t want the frosting you can skip it or use the ordinary cream and make frosting

Or you can totally leave the frosting

I have given the measurements for 6 cup cakes you can just double it and make 12.
