The other day whilst watching the Great British Bake off baking bread, got me thinking about how much fat is in a slice of bread. Whilst we normally make our bread, occasionally it is necessary to buy some, and I have noticed that the amount of fat per slice varies a huge amount. It can be less than 1 gram per slice to more than 4 grams, when it then gets highlighted as high in fat or even in some supermarkets marked in red.
The recipe given below makes an interesting beetroot bread. The bread comes out with an interesting red tinge to it, whilst tasting delicious at the same time. The ingredients given below are for a medium sized loaf
This can be made easily made in a bread machine putting the yeast in first, followed by the flower, then rest of ingredients and finally the water. Using the basic normal setting for a medium loaf medium crust. If the spring onions are added at the start of the process then they will be absorbed into the general mixture of the bread, adding to the depth of taste. If they are added at the end of the dough cycle then they keep their structure and have a more distinctive flavour. Of course it can also be made without a bread machine, allowing to rise for a couple of hours after basic kneading of the dough with the spring onions being added when it is knocked back. Then put in a greased tin and cook in a hot oven as per any normal medium sized white loaf. The resulting bread has around 1 gram of fat in it per slice assuming that you get 14 slices or more from the loaf.
