Josh and I take turns cooking dinner and on Tuesdays I cook and we always have soup, which is much nicer with home-made bread.
Sometimes we have slices of freshly made granary or wholemeal bread but there is something special about having individual mini-loaves. Josh doesn’t really care for caraway seeds so though these are delicious, next time I’ll leave out the caraway.
I always mix my dough in my Panasonic breadmaker but prove and bake it in my electric fan oven,
Bake 220°C 15-20 mins Makes 12
1½ teasp dried yeast
500gm strong bread flour
1 teasp table salt
170gm beetroot peeled, cut into segments and cooked 3 mins on HIGH in the microwave
Liquidize with 75ml warm water and add to:
150ml warm milk plus a heaped tablespoon plain yogurt
Mix in bread maker as a PLAIN loaf
Divide into 12 and roll into ovals
Prove in mini loaf tins for 40 mins
Bake 220°C 15-20 mins
Can add 1 teasp caraway seeds to mix if liked
