Remember back here I said I was making Red Velvet Cupcakes for Mr. Indie Fixx’s birthday? Well, I made them and they were delicious. I made them using this recipe from the Coconut & Lime blog, which called for beets. Mr. IF and I both love beets, so when I went looking for a Red Velvet recipe and saw this one, I knew it was the one for us (plus, it didn’t call for red food dye…yuck).
I did add more cocoa (additional 1/8 cup) and I didn’t use Dutch Process Chocolate, I prefer the kind not processed with alkali, so that’s what I had on hand. They didn’t turn out very red at all, but that’s okay. For me it’s the taste that makes it Red Velvet. I also used the Roux Frosting recipe as well.
The beets were from our own little Recession Garden.
