The rich chocolate with a hint of beetroot is enough to suppress the guilt of indulgence. The fibrous beetroot enhances the richness of the chocolate and makes this recipe truly different but delicious. I love the earthiness of the beetroot which should remind you that chocolate is made by mother nature and not some man- made substance wrapped in purple foil. The oil enhances the moistness of the cupcakes, makes it slightly dense but bizarrely fluffy and light at the same time.
I love this recipe for many reasons but another highlight is that it keeps well and does not go stale and tasteless after one day.
The chocolate fudge spread is a true winner in itself. For this recipe I have kept the spread smooth, but if you add roasted hazelnuts to the chocolate spread it will make this even more scrumptious. There is no need to purchase chocolate
