Our dark chocolate and beetroot brownie has been a favourite amongst guests this winter and we thought this would be a good day to share the recipe! If you’re planning a romantic meal in this evening this is sure to impress!

This recipe will make a batch of between 15 – 20 brownies so scale it down if you’re only cooking for 2!

250g beetroot (cooked)
100g unsalted butter
200g plain dark chocolate
1tsp vanilla extract
250g golden caster suer
3 eggs
100g plain flower
25g cocoa powder


1. Heat the oven to 170C and line a 20 x 30cm baking tin.
2. Blend the beetroot, chocolate, butter and vanilla in a food processor until the mix is smooth.
3. Beat the sugar and eggs in a large bowl, then fold the beetroot mix into it. Sift in the flour and cocoa and then gently fold to make a smooth batter.
4. Bake for 25 mins or until risen all over.

Serve with fresh raspberry coulis and a dusting of icing sugar. Happy baking and happy valentines day!
