Celebrate Halloween with some delicious blood red beet spice cupcakes with simple brain icing decorations any zombie (or zombie fan) can appreciate. Recipe uses beets instead of artificial food coloring. Perfect for the Walking Dead.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup beet puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line mini muffin tin with cupcake papers.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, beet puree, egg and vanilla.
  3. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and mix until completely combined.
  4. Use a small scooper or spoon to drop two teaspoons of batter into each cupcake paper.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, making sure a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. The cupcakes should spring back when lightly touched.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cupcakes cool completely.
  7. How to make beet puree: Wash and boil three small to medium beets until tender. Remove skins and puree until smooth. (Add a tablespoon or two of the water you boiled the beets in if necessary to puree.)
