Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup peeled and finely grated BCfresh Red Beets


  • Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8x8-in baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Microwave butter and 1/3 cup chocolate chips, stirring at 30 seconds intervals, until melted. Set aside to cool slightly. Stir together cocoa, flour and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Whisk eggs with sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add cooled butter-mixture, then stir until combined. Fold in the flour-mixture until almost combined. Stir in beets and remaining 1/3 cup chocolate chips being careful not to overmix. Scrape batter into prepared pan, then smooth top.
  • Bake until edges are firm and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes away with a few crumbs clinging to it, 25 to 30 minutes.
