Beetroot and Chocolate Muffins

When these popped into my Twitter timeline yesterday I was instantly smitten. Possibly not your first thought when mulling over muffin flavours, but trust me, these are absolutely beautiful. They improve in flavour as they mature, and they’re light and fluffy, with a strong chocolatey hit, as well as being healthy. What’s not to like? The beetroot flavour isn’t overpowering and works incredibly well with the chocolate. Give them a whirl, see what you think. I adapted the recipe slightly from the one I found, but it’s basically the same.  The lovely Pebble Soup is the one to blame, you can find this and lots of  other recipes here

100g golden caster sugar
