I absolutely love using beets in bakes. I have used them in various ways- in the form of beetroot juice, beetroot powder and this time I decided on pureed beets. Every single time, I am amazed how this humble vegetable not only gives the cake that subtle ‘sweet earthy flavour’ but also a delicious moist crumb.
Well there is also another reason why I am so stuck on this veggie, oh that gorgeous colour! You should have seen that stunning purple pink batter. I always hope that one fine day I would get that in a bake. But for now I am willing to settle for that hint of pink.
Did I tell you this one is whole wheat based and egg free too? It makes a yummy healthy treat for sure.
The ‘hot milk cake’ was such a success and I have used the same technique here. It definitely gives a gorgeous crumb. You can see the recipe here.
Do let me know if you happen to try this.
