|This is a later batch with more vibrant colors...|
I have seen this idea before, but had never tried it... rainbow bread. I've made rainbow cake, and it was met with rave reviews. I knew a rainbow bread would be a real treat.
Pretty simple, really. I made my variation on King Arthur Flour's pain de mie - using whey from straining my yogurt, adding some beveri flax meal some vital wheat gluten.
Then, I separated the dough into six more or less equal portions. I may or may not have measure them to see that they were equal.
|It's a hazard.. I'm a little rainbowed.|
Next, roll each ball into a rectangle about the same size. They don't have to be very thin, just oblong and about the length of your bread pan.
Lay the colors on top of one another in the order of the rainbow, and then roll them together into a thinner rectangle.
Then, I baked according to the directions for the pain de mie.

A note: I have not yet tried this bread with natural food dyes, but it is on my list of things to try... you can get great natural food dyes from Chocolate Craft Studio. She told me that the liquid coloring would probably work best with my rainbow bread. Let me know if you try it!
