Eggless Fudge Brownie with Beets | Eggless Beetroot Chocolate Brownies Recipe


If there is one thing that can make me forget all about conscious eating and diet control – it is chocolate. There are times when I do control myself from having that extra piece from the chocolate bar. But, on most occasions, it has the better of me. That’s why I prefer not having any chocolate bars at home. Perfect solution, isn’t it?

The intense chocolate flavour in fudge brownies is perhaps one of the reasons why I prefer them over cake any day. Give me a slice of soft, dense chocolatey brownie and I will wander into my chocolate nirvana. When I saw Srivalli had listed a brownie theme in the 78th edition of the Blogging Marathon, I instantly chose it.

I have already tried a number of brownie recipes and have shared a couple of them here. Check out these

Yet, there are so many brownie variations that are on my to-do list. I have seen many brownies with chocolate and beetroot combination doing rounds on the internet. So, I decided to try it myself. I used this recipe for fudge brownies as a standard and tweaked it to come up with this recipe. 

After having a slice of these beetroot fudge brownies, I realized beetroot and chocolate is a winning combination. There is no trace of any beetroot flavour. Unless you tell anyone, no one will ever make out this secret ingredient in the recipe. I used wheat flour and oil in this recipe to make it even healthier. Check out my recipe below.

Eggless Fudge Brownies with Beets

½ cup whole wheat flour or atta
¼ cup maida
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp instant coffee
100 g dark chocolate
½ cup beet puree
½ cup powdered sugar + 2 tbsp brown sugar
¼ cup oil
¼ cup whisked yogurt
¼ cup to ½ cup water
2 tbsp chopped walnuts

Process:

1. Line an 8” square brownie pan with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat the oven at 180 C.

2. In a large bowl add atta, maida, cocoa powder, coffee, and baking powder. Use a whisk to mix everything together. Set aside.

3. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and add it to a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave it for 1 minute so that it melts. Whisk it to get smooth melted chocolate. To it add oil and stir. Add sugar and stir it again. Now add yogurt and beets puree and whisk it nicely.

4. Add this wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients mixture. Add ¼ cup water and whisk to make a smooth batter. If the batter looks thick, add another ¼ cup water. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and top it with chopped walnuts.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. When done, a skewer inserted in the middle should come out clean.

6. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes before you can lift it from the pan along with the parchment paper. Slice and serve.


Notes:

1. To prepare beets puree, I pressure cooked 2 medium beets. When cooled, I peeled and chopped them and churned in a mixer jar to get the puree.

2. For fudge brownies, I prefer lining the tin with parchment. Since fudge brownies are quite soft and mushy, it is easier to lift the brownies out of the tin along with the parchment.

3. Slice them after the brownie has cooled a bit for neat slices.

4. You can do away with the maida in the recipe and add whole wheat flour or oats flour instead.

5. You can also double the beets puree and omit the yogurt and half the water amount for red looking brownies.

6. I had run out my regular powdered sugar, so I used 2 tbsp of brown sugar. You can regular sugar too.
