Happy 100th post – Celebrating with Beetroot Cupcakes w. pink Cheesecake Frosting

Beetroot cupcakes w. pink cheesecake frosting - A tasty love story

It is definitely time for celebration!
This is blogpost number 100, yay, crazy how fast it goes and how much food-love that fills up the pages here in my little universe. It is wonderful and I am so pleased that all of you is following, responding and trying the recipes.
Another reason to celebrate big time is that I have finished my education. Yesterday I graduated as a: Professional Bachelor in Nutrition and Health. My bachelor thesis was defended and afterwards rewarded with a glorious A+ and I now have a shiny new title as a health professional – love it!
All of this feels great. I love the blog and all of the work around it. So many of you ask me never to stop, to keep on going and I have received quite many wishes on making a Cook Book. And trust me this is a dream of mine and I truly hope and believe that this will be reality one day. But as for now I keep on blogging and plan on starting my master in Human Nutrition in September, because I am a big time nutrition nerd and even though I just graduated I can’t wait to go back to school and receive more amazing knowledge.

Since I started this blog I always dreamt of the day I would do my 100th post. I remember reading Sara B’s 100th post over at My New Roots and thinking that she was so cool and that she had accomplished so much of what I dreamt of. She has of course developed as well and is today a Superstar (to me at least) and it shows how fast things can roll.
But today I am very proud of presenting my 100th post and celebrating it with a magical and nutritious cake.

Beetroot cupcakes w. pink cheesecake frosting - A tasty love story

I made these cupcakes last week and brought them to a dinner date with my girlfriends and they definitely got the attention they deserved. Foamy frosting and pink waves are every girls cake-dream and combined with chocolate and the word ‘cheesecake’ I pretty much think we nailed it! I heard words as ‘the best cake ever’ and ‘I can get enough of this’. I myself consumed at least four from my first batch and I already plan on making them again next week.
The chocolate cake is an adapted version of my Beautiful Beetroot Cake I have simply made it into a grain free version with a sugar alternative that does not affect the blood sugar too much. The frosting is a kind of no-bake cheesecake with a hint of lemon flavour and an awesome colour from the natural beetroot juice. You can serve the cakes with or without the frosting and they keep moist and delicious in the fridge for several days and are even great for freezing. Lets get baking and together celebrate all of the other 99 healthy and wholesome recipes and many more to come!

    Hej Josephine.
    Kan du skrive lidt om hvornår du vælger at bruge sukrin gold / coconut sugar og hvornår du bruger andre sødemidler, fx almindelig sukrin?
    Hilsen Helene

    • Josephine MaleneJosephine Malene01-25-2014

      Hej Helene. Jeg bruger aldrig alm sukrin – den er for mig alt for kold i munden. Men sukrin og kokos sukker bruger jeg på lige fod. Det afhænger blot af hvad jeg har i skabet eller hvad jeg lige føler for. Jeg synes resultatet bliver tæt på det samme. Men kokossukker er billigere og indeholder gode mineraler og vitaminer, så hvis man ikke går op i indtag af kulhydrater el. kalorier er kokossukker at foretrække, og det har stadig ingen negativ virkning på blodsukkeret som alm hvid sukker og fruktose har :)

    Congratulations on your first 100 Josephine! This is the first post I have received and am inspired by the deliciousness of the beetroot, use of natural colour for the icing plus it is gluten free! I look forward to following your future posts.

      Oh I am so glad to hear that – I love the all natural-ness too using beetroot to colour and the depth of all the flavours :)

    Congratulations on post #100 and your new bachelor title! Those cupcakes look adorable! I will have to make an adaption to dairy-free frosting, but that’s nothing that cashew cream can not fix ;-)

    Enjoy the time off University, and the Masters starting in September! Also I hope to be starting a bachelor in September in Aarhus, so maybe see you one of these days for a cooking session!!

    Hi! Just want to say congrats !! I’m a huge fan of your blog. I’m starting a four year degree to become dietitian and nutritoinist this year so hopefully in four years ill be able to put up a similar post to yours. Making this recipe today as I have some beetroots from the garden and only one beetroot Choc muffin left in the freezer. Also love the carrot cake balls! They will be the perfect snack at uni.
    Love from Australia,
    Holly

    • Josephine MaleneJosephine Malene02-09-2014

      Mmm, sound so great, love it when you grow your own veggies, wish I had that opportunity! And the best of luck with your degree, it is a wonderful study :)

    Grattis till 100 inlägg! Cupcaksen ser underbart goda ut! Kan man byta ut mandelmjölet mot kokosmjöl eller något annat mjöl? Tänkte baka dessa till en nötallergiker!

    • Josephine MaleneJosephine Malene02-09-2014

      Tak :) Ja, så længe det ikke er det affedtede kokosmel, så er det helt fint tror jeg :) Måske de bliver lidt mere smuldrede, men hvis du prøver at finmale kokosmelet inden, så burde det fungere :)

  15. nancy@jamjnrnancy@jamjnr02-04-2014

    Congratulatons! I feel like I stalk you on instagram and pinterest but I love your recipes and photos. I’m trying to move towards more grain & sugar free recipes so please keep the recipes coming they are really inspiring me.

    • Josephine MaleneJosephine Malene02-09-2014

      Haha, feel free to stalk that is just great! And no worries I am definitely keeping these recipes coming :)

  16. TheresaTheresa02-18-2014
