Beetroot Chocolate Brownies

(I did these in Brownie pan, using chocolate chips)

This recipe is from Tony Hanks from Good morning show. He prepared this dish. I immediately went and tried. Yummy dessert to die for. He used fresh beetroot, but I tweaked mine with canned ones. Thanks Tony!

Pieces - 15

Ingredients and Proceed:

Watties Beetroot slices - 1 tin or 1 cup puree (drain the juice, keep it in a bowl and wash 3 times, and puree the beetroot with stick blender) keep aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together - 1/2 cup Flour, 1/3 rd cup Cocoa powder, 1 tbsp Coffee powder - keep aside.

Unsalted butter - 125 g
Sugar - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Egg whites - 4
Chocolate chips - 1/2 cup

Preheat oven to 180 " C and grease a brownie pan or  23 cm square baking pan.

Beat together butter and sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add vanilla, then beat in egg white one at a time. Stir in the beetroot puree and mix until well blended.

Add flour mixture into the beetroot mixture and fold until just ombined. Stir through the chocolate chips.

Pour into the prepared tin and bake for about 40 mins or until a thin-bladed knife or skewer inserted
into the centre of the cake comes out almost clean. Allow to cool then cut into pieces.


If you are using fresh beetroot then use about 2 large raw beetroot or 350 g. Boil the beetroots until soft, then drain and allow to cool a little, Rub the skins off then mash in a food processor or with a potato masher until smooth,.

(I did these in oven proof dish, using chocolate buttons instead)
