    175g Cooked Beetroot

    3 x Large Free Range Eggs

    200g Self Raising Flour

    100g Instant Hot Chocolate

    200ml Vegetable Oil

    1 x 200g bar Dark Chocolate

    65g Cream Cheese

    40g Creamy Butter Unsalted

    ½ tsp Rich Roast Instant Coffee

    300g Caster Sugar

    Method

    Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5.

    Place 12 muffin cases into a muffin tray.

    Chop the beetroot into chunks and put into a food processor, then whizz until pulp, (or chop the beetroot as finely as you can).

    Put the beetroot into a bowl and add the eggs, flour, 200g caster sugar and instant hot chocolate powder.

    Mix well, and then beat in the oil slowly.

    Grate or chop the chocolate finely and fold into the mixture.

    Add the mixture into the muffin cases and bake for 20-25 minutes in the oven.

    To make the icing: in a bowl beat together the cream cheese, butter, remaining caster sugar and the instant coffee powder.

    Once the cakes are cooled, decorate with the icing.
