Alice’s Beetroot Brownie recipe.

Today was a home day and I felt some baking was in order, I put a shout out and lots of my lovely readers replied with their favourite recipes, but Eula requested ‘Beetroot Hash Browns’ as she calls them, and what the little person wants, well….

I thought I’d share the recipe (I posted a very similar one around Christmas, but that was in a big fancy cake form and you may not have seen it)…so here you are…

Ingredients –

  • 250g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 250g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 250g beetroot. I use the precooked vacuum packed stuff from the supermarket, make sure it isn’t the one in vinegar! Grate with a cheese grater, use the juice too.


  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees  (Fan assisted oven)
  • Line your chosen tin with greaseprrof paper, I use a big shallow ish tray or today it was the grill pan as I can’t find my usual one.
  • Break chocolate into pieces, or attack the packet with a rolling pin like Eula did! Cut butter into cubes, throw both into a large mixing bowl and place in oven as it heats up, stir occasionally until completely melted.
  • Whisk eggs and sugar together.
  • Add melted chocolate + butter, beat together until smooth
  • Gently fold in the flour, then the beetroot, don’t over work it
  • Spoon the mixture into your tin.
  • Bake in centre of oven for 20 minutes, checking through out that it isn’t catching.
  • Leave to cool completely once out of the oven.

You can buy the grid table cloth from IKEA, the yummy plate and bowl are both Habitat.

    Hi, saw the previous comment. Was going to make these this evening. Is 250g of sugar correct?

    1. Sorry for the delay Monica, the above comment was from when I first posted the recipe and an extra 0 or something had snuck in. It’s correct now x
