Beetroot bread: Directions

Step 1

Wash the beetroot, wrap it in foil and bake at 185°С /365°F for 60–90 minutes (depending on size). Leave it to cool, then peel and cut into small cubes.

Step 2

Dice the bacon and fry until golden brown.

Step 3

Put flour through a sieve and mix with salt. Dissolve the yeast in warm water, add sugar. Leave it for 15 minutes to give the yeast time to wake up and become active.

Step 4

Add yeast to the mixture of flour with salt, and knead the dough until soft and elastic. Knead in the fried bacon and beetroot cubes. Form a dough ball and carefully move it to an oiled bowl. Leave it in a warm place for 40 minutes until bread rises and doubles or triples in volume.

Step 5

Press down the dough and form a round shape. Place it on a baking paper-lined tray and sprinkle it with flour. Leave for 30 more minutes to rise some more.

Step 6

Bake at 220°C / 425°F for 5 minutes. Then turn the temperature down to 180°C / 350°F and cook for 30 more minutes.
