Vegane Cupcakes mit Schokolade und roter Bete

Beetroot cupcakes with chocolate #vegan

This time we haven't reinterpreted our bowls in a delicious recipe, but our opinion-divisive one Beet shot used. Sounds strange, but tastes delicious. 

Our Beet Shot is a classic ginger shot made from ginger, apple and lemon juice - pimped with the super tuber beetroot. A daring combination, but trust us - those who like beetroot will love our shot. In our cupcakes, the beet shot is processed alongside cooked beetroot in the batter and brings a slightly earthy, minimally spicy note to the sweet cakes. The vegan frosting is made on the basis of cashew nuts (every vegan's darling) and is not only incredibly creamy, but also looks great in terms of color thanks to the beetroot powder.
