Beetroot Brownies

I recently received a bag of beetroot from a community garden so have been trying to find something to make that uses beetroot. 

I could roast them with garlic which is delicious, but I'd made that before and wanted to try something new and a friend suggested beetroot brownies. 

The first time I tried these they were with dark cooking chocolate but this time I decided to go all out and make it with Green & Black's dark chocolate with cherries which has 70% cocoa.  It was definitely worth it if a little expensive!! 

These made really sumptuous, moist, crumbly, delicious brownies and here's the recipe:


200g Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa)
250g Margarine / butter
250g Sugar
3 medium free range eggs
75g self raising flour
250g beetroot (boiled until you can slide a fork into them easily)


1   Melt the margarine/butter and chocolate.
2   Beat the eggs with the sugar while the chocolate and margarine/butter are melting and then once they are fully melted combine with the beaten eggs and sugar.
3   Start to preheat your oven at 180 degrees C
4   Mix in the flour with a large spoon
5   Chop the beetroot until its in very small pieces then add these to the mix.  Once all nicely combined your mixture is ready.
6   Grease your baking tin and pour in the mixture
7   Put your brownies in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes and enjoy the smell in your kitchen while they bake
8   Enjoy!!
