Beetroot Bread


Who said beetroot bread is supposed to be red? My beetroot bread turned out as brown color :P. It looks just like wholemeal bread. Utilizing the breadmaker machine again, I made another loaf of bread with beetroot juice. Oh ya, the measuring spoon at the back was a gift from Anncoo Journal, Thanks Anncoo!

Neato Mosquito! You guys make the coolest stuff. I wish I could have a piece of this with some butter and hot tea;) Yum!

Beetroot won't turn red after being baked ler. Remember Gert's special chiffon? The prickly pear has the same type of pigment as beetroot, which is betalain. It turns peachy and orangy instead of remaining pink or red.

More experiments coming up, I guess. :p

I don't quite enjoy eating beetroot on its own. I guess having it in my bread is something I can try.

Based on what Wendy has said here, I think hor the color of the beets shows up best only in handmade noodle gua?

Ya, beets make great addition to bread! In fact, I did something similar by adding excess Italian parsley to my bread by first "pureeing" it with some water. Here's my bread from last Sunday, which basically uses up whatever leftovers I had. I LOVE making bread!

Sorry that it doesn't turned out as expected. No worries, can always try with something else. Red dragonfruit is a nice choice! However, the bread texture looks great. Thanks for sharing and hope you're having a terrific time.
Cheers, Kristy
