This delicious and perfect purple bread is cooked in a dutch oven. The purple carrots give a lovely color but you can not taste it. So what you end up is actually a purple rye bread. Perfect! —Gamze Mutfakta (Piper Nigrum)

What You'll Need
  • 160 grams rye flour
  • 350 grams flour
  • 100 grams whole wheat flour
  • 18 grams yeast
  • 20 grams melted butter(room temp)
  • 12 grams salt
  • 6 grams sugar
  • 75 milliliters milk
  • 120 milliliters purple carrot juice
  • 175 milliliters water (room temp)
  1. Heat oven to 220 C . Place your dutch oven with lid on.
  2. Melt yeast and sugar in milk. Sieve flour. In a stand mixer combine flour, salt, milk( with sugar and yeast added), water, carrot juice and mix with a hook at medium speed for 3 minutes add butter and mix for another 3 minutes. Turn another 2-3 minutes at high speed. When the dough starts to come from the sides stop.
  3. Lightly sprinkle flour on a working surface. Knead the dough for 5 minutes. Dust a large bowl with flour, place the dough and cover with cling film.
  4. Rest for an hour for proofing. When the dough doubles in size knead for two minutes and place it on a baking sheet. Cover and let it proof for another 20 minutes.
  5. Take the dutch oven out. Carefully slide the dough in the pot. (or place it with the sheet) Dust with flour score the top. Close the lid. The dutch oven needs to be shallow, giving enough space for the dough to rise.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes with lid on. After 20 minutes take the lid off and bake another 20 minutes until the bread is golden brown.
  7. Rest on a cooling rack for at least 15-20 minutes before cutting and resist the temptation to see the color:)
