These Brownies CAN'T be Beet?

I finally found a way to get my hubby to eat beets - I hide them.  This recipe makes 16 brownies.  If you don't have beet puree, use pumpkin puree.

  3/4 Cup Beet Puree                                                     2 Tsp Baking Powder
  4 Ounce Milk Chocolate Chips                                   Pinch Salt
  8 Tbl Butter                                                                 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
  1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour                                          1/3 Cup Sugar
  1/4 Cup Cocoa                                                             2 Large Eggs

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan.  Whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, set aside.  Cream 7 Tbl butter and sugar together.  Melt chocolate and 1 Tbl butter over a double boiler, put into mixing bowl and cool.  When cool, add eggs, one at a time, until well mixed.  Add vanilla and beet puree, stir well.  Mix in flour mixture until just combined.  Pour batter into pan and bake for 40 - 45 minutes.

  1. I've got the batter prepared, and realized there is no temperature in the recipe! I'll try 350 and see how it goes...

  2. Thank you - 350 is correct and the post has been updated.
