Celebrate Halloween with delicious, blood red, beet spice cupcakes decorated with simple brain-icing decorations. Any zombie (or zombie fan) can appreciate these adorable treats. The recipe uses beets instead of artificial food coloring. Perfect for The Walking Dead fans.


  • 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 a mini muffin tin with cupcake papers.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices together in a large bowl.
  3. Mix sugar, beet puree, egg, and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  5. Use a small scooper or spoon to drop two teaspoons of batter into each cupcake paper.
  6. 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.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cupcakes cool completely.


How to make beet puree:

  1. Wash and boil three small to medium beets until tender.
  2. Remove skins and puree until smooth in a food processor or blender. (Add a tablespoon or two of water if necessary to puree.)
