The Vampire Ate My Cupcake
The basic cupcake recipe is very easy, quick and healthy, thanks to the yoghurt and vegetable oil in it.
I use it for a large variety of cupcakes by adding different dry ingredients to the dough.
This time I tried adding finely grated beet and ground walnut and it turned out bloody-looking and pretty tasty.

Bonus: the most antioxidants you ever had in a cupcake!

    Grate a small beet to measure about 1/2 cup.

    You can add 1 cup of basically anything to this dough, as long as it's relatively dry, grated carrot or zuccini is still OK, but you can try shredded coconut, chocholate chips, cubed apple...anything you crave at the moment :)

    The beet and walnut in the dough will make it look uneven, bloody brain-like.
    You can serve it as is or decorate Here I used cream cheese and lingonberry jam (from IKEA, it's full of fruit!)
