Cupcakes Made With Beets!
Wondering what to do with these? Well, why not make cupcakes! Yep, you heard, ok read it right, CUPCAKES!
I saw this recipe on TV a while back and thought to myself if I ever get beets out of my garden, this will be one recipe that I must try, just to see what it would taste like!
Here is the recipe (Red Velvet Cupcakes)
The idea is to use the beets instead of artificial food coloring to make the cupcakes red.
I followed the recipe but I added unsweetened dark cocoa instead of regular unsweetened cocoa. So it made my cupcakes look like chocolate cupcakes instead of red velvet cupcakes. And when I was ready to pour the batter into the muffin cups, it actually made 24 instead of 12 cupcakes. And no, we did not eat them all, all because I put over half of them in the extra refrigerator and forgot about them!
