Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).

Step 1 : The batter
  1. Rinse the beet cubes under cold water.
  2. In a small blender, combine the goat’s milk yogurt and red beet.
  3. Transfer to a mixing bowl, making sure there are no small pieces of unmixed beet left. 😆
  4. Add the egg, sunflower oil, and brown sugar. Whisk the ingredients with a fork. Incorporate the flour and baking powder, mix well.
Step 2 : Baking
  1. Pour the batter into a buttered and floured square baking pan , approximately 7 x 7 inches.
  2. Grease the inside of a heart cookie cutter with butter and dust it with flour. This will make it easier to remove after baking. Then press it into the batter in the center of the pan.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius), convection heat on the second level.
