So, I thought since the site for ‘Doodle Bread’ is about to launch, it’s time to write up some of the doodle bread recipes that I’ve been using.

Basically, the doodle bread kit comes with one pack of doodle bread mix, either with a red beetroot mix for red star bread or green spinach mix for green stars on your slice. The spinach and beetroot has been specially sourced and is kind of hard to get hold of, but I’ll be putting up other posts using a whole different variety of ingredients in the bread (smoothie stars any0ne?) or you can always use different pastes and purees to get great colours and flavours.

Here’s the recipe then –

For the white bread mix

315 g  or 1 and 1/3 cups or 11 ounces Strong Bread Flour

2.5 g or 1/2 teaspoon salt

2.5 g or 1/2 teaspoon sugar

5 g or 1 heaped teaspoon dried yeast

about 1 dessert spoon of vegetable oil, or a knob of butter

about 200ml of warm water

and for the red/green star mix

90 g or (just under) 1/2 cup or 3 1/2 ounces Strong Bread Flour

5 g or heaped teaspoon of Pure Beetroot Powder or Pure spinach powder

2.5 g or half teaspoon of dry yeast

pinch of salt

pinch of sugar

dribble of vegetable oil or a wee knob of butter

roughly 80ml of warm water

I’ve also included a few snaps of the labels and the actual vegetable powders used in the mix  😀spinach-and-beetroot-powder
