Red Velvet Cupcakes with Orange Buttercream
Cookbook - Roots: The Definitive Compendium with More Than 225 Recipes, by Diane Morgan
The idea behind this recipe is pure brilliance: red velvet cupcakes, but made without food coloring. The color comes from freshly roasted and pureed beets! So you can healthify* your (cup)cake and eat it too. Since I haven’t experimented with this recipe yet, I would love to hear from any readers who give it a try.
