I actually think I'm obsessed with beetroot! I eat it morning noon and night, pickled, boiled or mixed in cake, I love it! Imagine my delight when, a few month ago, the lovely Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall featured a recipe for beetroot brownies on his show River Cottage Autumn. I'd already accustomed myself to the beetroot chocolate relationship so it didn't come as much of a surprise to see the two living in such close proximity, but Hugh's recipe was so much simpler than the beetroot cake I usually make. I had to try it!
Not only was this incarnation much easier to produce but it was so much tastier too. I had to bake my brownies for a bit longer than Hugh recommends as the tray I used was slightly smaller than the one in the recipe but they were so moist and, well, I can't even describe the taste, you'll just have to try them for yourself. Trust me, you won't be sorry.
They were so tasty, I even had to half a square with my cat, Marmalade. By the look on his face, I think he enjoyed it :)
