Beets Me

Finally we caved over here and got brave enough to hook beets up with chocolate. Guess what.
They get along quite nicely. It might even be love.

Here's their love story.

2 Cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 Cups sugar {the white kind}
2/3 Cup cocoa powder {which ever kind you prefer. We went dark chocolate over here}
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

3/4 Cup unsalted butter {softened}
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 Cup cooked and pureed beets
1 1/4 Cups hot water
? mini semi sweet chocolate chips. {you know my rules..however many you like!}

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease whatever size muffin tins you wish! Or cake pans... I'm gonna say an 8inch cake pan.

In a large bowl mix together flour,sugar,cocoa,baking powder & salt.

Add butter and mix

Add vanilla and eggs and mix

Add cooked pureed beets and mix

Then add hot water and...you guessed it...mix!

Pour batter into prepared tins/pans

Bake until a tooth pick comes out clean. I don't time these things and I really should remember to...but I just can't do it for some reason! {Cause I like to learn things the hard way...or trial and error. sigh.}

Let cool on rack and then ENJOY these healthy little bits of semi healthy goodness!

I promise you your hubs/kidlets will not even know whats in these things! Muahaha.


They lived happily ever after.
