Beets Buying Bread (A B M)

This bread has a lovely festive color from the star ingredient which is beets and is perfect for party sandwiches or for a dinner party or BBQ. It was inspired and created for the RSC #14 cooking contest for the Summer of 2009, but since the original recipe had MAJOR problems I am reworking it and subtracting ingredients that are no longer required to be in it.

Lovely! Airy high loaf! When in the machine it had a brilliant pink/red color. I wish it kept it after baking. But in the end it was delish. I made a grilled sandwich with the bread using Slow Roasted Pork Loin Filled With Roasted Garlic, sliced thin and left over Glazed Parsnips and Carrots. Made a great Autumn grilled sandwich. Each complementing each other. Little did my Dear Hubby know he was eating beets! I used the dried milk for the buttermilk. Perfect light delightful bread! Just wish it kept that beautiful pink color. I did add the minced beets in with the water, and the cranberries I added at the beep. Thanks.

This recipe needs work. I have spoken to the chef and given her ideas which would improve it.
