While sharing how the lockdown has given us much time to think and explore new things, Maria gave out the Beetroot Brownie recipe in a series of video highlights.

Here is the recipe.


1 no – Beetroot
2 no – Eggs
1tsp – Vanilla essence
1 cup – Butter
2tbsp – Cocoa powder
1 cup – Flour
Caster sugar
Chocolate chips


*Take a few chocolate chips in a bowl. Melt it with butter which has been kept at room temperature.

*Add some caster sugar in another bowl and break two eggs into it. Whisk the mixture until it gets pale. Pour the melted butter and chocolate mixture into the batter. Add cocoa powder and vanilla essence.

*Grate beetroot into the mixture. It adds moistness to the cake, mentioned Maria. The mixture will now be red. Add flour into the brownie batter by sieving it. Mix the flour with the batter; ensure there are no lumps. Put the mixture in a cake pan.

*Put the cake pan into the oven and bake the brownie. The end result is yum.
