After looking many yummy looking goodies especially red velvet cake and whoopie pie's from my dear bloggers, I wanted to try them badly but with a difference.. Whoopie pies are small, flat sponge cakes sandwiched between cream - or in this case cream frosting. These sweet little cakes are just delicious, mostly healthy and looks fantastic.These whoopie pies are delicious and healthier than most desserts—they're made with vitamin-rich beets!!!The beet flavour is extremely subtle and also gives the cake a lovely color . Just loved this cake... As they are made using beetroot and named them as " Heart beet whoopie pie cake " perfect impress my valentine isn't it :)
All purpose flour- 1 cup
Beetroot -3 tbsp( Boiled and pureed)

For red velvet whoopie pie cake :

If there is any lumps don't worry it will let mixed when combined to flour.Sift the All purpose flour , cocoa powder , baking powder and baking soda .Divide the flour mixture to 2 equal parts. Add each part of flour mixture into the butter milk mixture by whisking them continuously.Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Now you can either spoon them on the baking tray to form a round cookie shape or just pour all the batter in the tray . Bake this flat cake in preheated oven at 350 F for 10 min or till when a toothpick inserted should come clean.Give them a standing time of 10 mins and using a cookie cutter cut them into desired shape, I made them heart shaped as it is valentines day :).
Beat the heavy cream and sugar to form a soft peak. Add vanilla essence and mix .
Now take piece of heart shaped cake and apply the frosting in one side of the cake and then place another piece of heart on top of it like a sandwich . You can either use a spoon or pipe the frosting using piping bag.
Heart beet Red velvet whoopie pie cake is ready to serve!! :)
