The Great Recipe Swap: Eggless Beetroot Milo Brownies

Eggless Beetroot Milo Brownies, by Gayathri Saravanan.

“These eggless beetroot Milo brownies are moist and fudgy. As Milo is Singapore’s favourite drink, I added it here for a delicious local twist. Most of my cooking is based on my Amma’s (mother’s) style.”

Makes: 12 squares

400 grams beetroot

100 grams softened unsalted butter

1/3 cup milk

200 grams confectioners’ sugar

1 tablespoon Hershey’s chocolate syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted

125 grams flour, sifted

100 grams Milo powder


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

2. Wash the beetroots, microwave them for 10 minutes, let them cool, then peel off the outer skin. Puree in a processor.

3. Mix the vanilla essence, chocolate syrup, sugar, beetroot purée, softened butter and milk. Now gently fold these into the flour and baking powder. 

4. Pour into a lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, being careful not to overcook – the brownies should remain fudgy. If in doubt, undercook them.

5. Serve sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar.
