Eggless Beetroot cake/beet cup cake ( microwave)

Couple of days back i prepared this eggless  beet cake for one of my veg-food group in FB.I chose beet because that days theme was beetroot so wanted to post some unique dish out of beetroot and thought of baking some cake and to save my time i baked in the microwave.It was so easy and really very tasty. First i prepared some cup cakes and then one small cake.Both the cakes come out really well.

Maida/all purpose flour-11/2cups
Baking Powder-11/2 level tsp
Baking soda-1/2 heaped tsp
Salt -1/4tsp
Beetroot grated-1cup
Vegetable oil-1/2cup
Melted butter-1tbsp
Butter milk-1/2 cup
Cashew nut chopped-2tbsp
Tutti fruitti -2tbsp
Beetroot grated-1tsp for garnishing 
Cinnamon powder-1tsp
Nutmeg powder-1/4tsp
Vanilla essence-1tsp

  • Sieve maida,baking soda,baking powder,salt and cinnamon powder and keep aside.
  • Grind beetroot to a  smooth paste  using butter milk and vinegar in a mixer grinder or you can use a hand blender too
  • Then in the same jar add sugar and blend it again until sugar dissolves completely.
  • Now add oil and melted butter blend it again for few seconds until creamy.
  • Now take out this beetroot mixture into a wide bowl and add vanilla essence and  powdered ingredients little at a time in 3 batches and fold it gently into this mixture.Once you are done transfer the content to greased microwave safe bowl( i have used 9"bowl) and garnish it with some grated beetroots and nuts cook in micro on high for about 10 minutes or until done(cakes starts to come away from sides of pan).
  • You can make some cup cakes  instead with the same batter.cook on high for about a minute in micro or till done.
