More About This Recipe
Spring officially has sprung, and you know what that means...
Well yes, it does mean no more snow (hopefully) and a little more sunshine, but it also means a whole lotta rainy days.
But though the April showers are working hard to bring May flowers, we can bring some brightness and happiness into our homes at any time via this Rainbow Swirl Bread. Isn’t this the craziest/most awesome thing you ever did see? It’s like the rainbow and the pot of gold all in the same recipe -- the pot of gold being a delicious sandwich bread you can eat with anything and everything.
Let’s taste the rainbow!First, make your basic bread dough. I used the same base I’ve used for other dyed bread recipes because it works so well every time and holds up to a bit of a beating when you add the dye.
You can divide the dough into five pieces, or however many colors you want to swirl into the loaf.
I’ll admit this does take some time to mix the colors into the dough (about 10 minutes per piece), but it’s by far the toughest step of the whole recipe so once you’re done, it’s easysauce from here on out!
Have fun with this bread -- use it to make French toast, sandwiches, bread pudding or just to stare at it when you need a little brightness and cheer in your life. Happy baking!
