What you'll need

250g dark chocolate

250g unsalted butter

250g caster sugar

250g beetroot – roasted, peeled and grated

3 eggs

150g self raising flour


Melt the chocolate and butter together. Then whisk the eggs and sugar until the mixture reaches the ribbon stage. Beat in the chocolate and butter mixture. Gently fold in the flour.

And finally, gently fold in the beetroot.

Pour the brownie mixture into a lined tin and bake for 22 minutes at 180°C/gas 4/350°F.

NOTE: the brownie should still have a slight wobble when cooked and you should allow it to cool fully before removing it from the tin.
