Yield: Serves 10

Beetroot Brownies
What's not to love as a beetroot brownie is around half the fat of regular brownies, less guilty pleasure, but still have that intense chocolate hit!

• 450g beetroot (5 medium size beets)
• 100g unsalted butter, plus extra for the tin
• 200g plain chocolate (70% cocoa)
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 250g golden caster sugar
• 3 large eggs
• 100g self-raising flour
• 25g cocoa powder
• 1-4 tbsp maple syrup

How to prepare
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Line a 20cm square tin with baking paper.

3. Roughly chop 4 beets and put them into a large bowl. Add a splash of water, cover with cling film, then microwave on high for 12 mins or until tender.

4. Pour the cooked beetroot into a sieve, drain off any excess liquid, then put into a food processor or blender with the chocolate, butter and vanilla. Whizz until the mix is as smooth as you can get it. The chocolate and butter will melt as you do this.

5. Put the sugar and eggs into a large bowl, then beat using an electric hand whisk until thick, pale and foamy for about 2 mins.

6. Spoon the beetroot mix into the bowl then use a large metal spoon to fold it into the whisked eggs. Try to conserve as much air in the mixture as you can. Sift in the flour and cocoa powder, then gently fold these in to make a smooth batter.

7. Then spoon into 20cm square tin and bake for 30 minutes (shorter if you like them fudgy, longer if you like them more crispy) until set and just firm in the middle. The brownies are ready when the surface is dry.

8. Make the frosting, add 1 medium size beetroot, 25g cocoa powder and 1-4 tbsp of maple syrup (to taste) to a food processor and puree until it is as smooth as possible.

9. When the brownies are cool, draw the surface with the frosting and it's ready to serve!

The brownies can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
