75g (3oz) White’s Oatbran Fine Cut

25g (1oz) White’s Apple, Cranberry & Raspberry Granola

75g (3oz) cocoa powder

100g (31/2oz) plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

250g (9oz) cooked, peeled beetroot in natural juices, drained

3 large eggs

200ml (7fl oz.) sunflower oil

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

250g (9oz) caster sugar

125g (41/2oz) white chocolate

4 tbsp. cream cheese

2.) Sift the cocoa powder and flour into a large bowl and stir in the oat bran and baking powder. Place the beetroot, eggs, sunflower oil and vanilla bean paste into a food processor and whizz until smooth. Stir into the flour mixture with the caster sugar and beat until well combined. Divide between the paper cases and bake for 25-30 minutes until risen and firm to the touch. Cool on a wire rack.

3.) Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a simmering pan of water. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Beat in the cream cheese until thick and glossy. Divide between the cupcakes and spread evenly. Sprinkle over the granola to serve.

Cook’s Tip:

Look out for ready-cooked beetroot in the fresh fruit and vegetable aisles of the supermarket – make sure you choose beetroot in natural juices not dipped in vinegar.

    Hi Claire, these cakes sound interesting and I'm sure that much beetroot must go towards a veggie portion? I'd certainly give them a go if I can find all the ingredients.#weekendbloghop x
