How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, olive oil, and orange zest. Fold in shredded beet. (Do not squeeze juice from shredded beet.) Place paper baking cups in a 12-cup muffin pan. Spoon batter into cups, filling two-thirds full. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.
