Brownies – yum!
As my previous two posts have been rants, I thought it was about time I injected some sweetness into the blogosphere – so here you go – brownies!
But these are no ordinary brownies, oh no – these are Beetroot Brownies. We had a really good beetroot crop this year which I have roasted, pickled and made into soup. I was wondering what to do with my remaining few beetroot when, as if on cue (thanks Hugh!), River Cottage Autumn featured some unusual Beetroot recipes – including one for Beetroot Brownies which I knew I would have to try.
So, they look fairly yummy but what do they taste like? Well, pretty much like chocolate brownies to be honest! I gave some to my parents-in-law without telling them what the ‘added’ ingredient was and they were unable to guess. I do think they have a slightly earthier taste to normal brownies, however, and combined with the fact that I used very bitter dark chocolate, this makes them more of a ‘grown-up’ treat. Yum!
