Beet Muffins

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

It had been a while since I baked cakes and muffins. I had these lovely beets that had been sitting in the fridge for a while. I used one and steamed it and added it to the regular cake batter along with some non-alkalized cocoa powder and baked these beautiful muffins. I also made some pretty cakes in the sandwich maker and here are some pics for you to see:) Also note that I have used a blender to mix all the ingredients.


All purpose flour(unbleached)-2 cups
Salt-1/2 tsp
Baking powder-1 tsp
Vegetable oil-1 cup
Eggs-4, at room temperature
Sugar-1 cup
Vanilla Essence-1 tsp
Beets-1 cup chopped and steamed
Non-alkalised cocoa powder-1 heaped tsp


1. Beat the eggs until fluffy in a blender along with the vanilla essence.

2.Add sugar and blend it for a couple seconds.

3.Add the oil and the steamed beets and blend until smooth.

4. Mix together all the dry ingredients and add  to the egg mixture and blend until all the ingredients are incorporated well.

5. Line a muffin tray with muffin liners and pour the batter in each cup 3/4 th of the way and not full.

6. Bake the muffins in a pre-heated oven at 350 deg F for about ten minutes.

7.Stick a toothpick in and if it comes out clean, turn off the oven and pull the muffin tray out and set it aside to cool.
