Are you like me & really love the idea of red velvet cupcakes, but are then disappointed when the cake is a bit dry & the redness from a little bottle of chemicals & has nothing all that velvety or natural about it? Yes? No?
Hmmm … maybe I over think food a little sometimes, but what else is a foodie to do!?!
Anyway – I decided I wanted to try making something similar, using more natural & seasonal ingredients & after ‘Googling’, as you do, I found a number of recipes touting the wonders of using beetroot & chocolate together to make great cakes.
As it so happened, I had some lovely organic home grown beets in the pantry, with little hope of doing much other than preserving them, as I am the only beetroot eater in the house – I felt I should explore this idea some more. Let me just say, I am so glad I did!
