Beetroot brownies

    40 min

    These brownies are so fudgy and dense, and the beetroot makes them moist and gives them a great earthy flavour that will go undetected by most!

    Easy recipe to follow, lovely tasting!!  -  10 Feb 2016


    These were fab! The beetroot did help keep them moist, and the flavour remained very chocolately. Would recommend, and will make again.  -  05 May 2015
