When I want to impress someone I bake them what S refers to as the big guns, my sourdough pumpkin loaf, unless they don't eat gluten then I hand them some chocolate, unless they don't eat sugar then I hand them a celery stick, unless they are paleo then...oh that's right I don't have paleo friends.
Lately I've been wondering about a beetroot loaf. I've played around with carrot and sweet potato and potato but I had an inkling beetroot would be worth a try. The dough was an amazing colour and I couldn't wait to cut into it and was surprised when I did.
Also surprising was the flavour which wasn't beetrooty at all. All I could taste was the dill and the rye flour. Tasty but very unexpected.
