    Some Funsters requested Barbara's recipe for Stout and beetroot cupcakes at the Misterton Meet.:Smile:

    The following recipe will make 12 muffins

    Ingredients

    75g/2¾oz cocoa powder
    175g/6oz plain flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    225g/8oz caster sugar
    3 free-range eggs
    225g/8oz cooked beetroot (no added vinegar)
    100ml/3½fl oz Irish stout
    100ml/3½fl oz corn oil
    For the cream cheese icing

    200g/7oz unsalted butter, softened
    200g/7oz full-fat cream cheese
    1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped out.
    450g/1lb icing sugar

    Preparation method
    1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with
    paper cases.

    2. Sift the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar into a bowl.

    3. Blend the eggs, beetroot, stout and oil in a food processor until
    smooth.

    4. Stir the beetroot into the flour mixture until just combined (do not
    overmix).

    5. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and cook in the oven for
    20-25 minutes, or until the cupcakes have risen and the tops are
    springy to the touch. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

    6. For the cream cheese icing, beat the butter, cream cheese and
    vanilla together in a bowl until smooth; then slowly beat in the icing
    sugar.

    7. Spread the icing onto the muffins with a knife or spoon the icing into
    a piping bag fitted with a 1cm/½in star nozzle and pipe the icing onto
    the muffins.

    This should take less than 30 mins preparation time
    10 to 30 mins cooking time
