I have been making bread with my beloved bread machine for about half a year now and I have never baked any loaf of white bread. Not sure if I just cannot stick with the simplicity or Im just unable to resist the temptation and curiosity to try all the flour in the baking supply section. Few days ago I just realized that I never made bread with carrots, and I happened to have a whole bunch in the fridge so I thought I would give it a try.
I admit that they do look a bit like bread from the medieval time, but it’s healthy and hearty, great for making breakfast sandwiches.
Here is the recipe:
Bread flour 200g
graham flour 50g
rye flour 25g
rice flour 25g (can be replaced with graham or rye flour)
15g maple syrup
50g grated carrot
25g unsalted butter
14g fresh yeast
1 tbsp mixed seeds (I used chia, hemp, poppy and psyllium seeds) you can also sprinkle them on top of each roll instead of adding them to the dough itself.
155g to 165g water
Put everything in the bread machine and start the knead and proof program. Take out the dough and punch down, divide into 6 pieces and proof under a kitchen towel or in the oven for 1 hour. Bake at 200degree (392f) for 11 to 15 min.
I think next time I will add a little bit fennel seed powder and sesame to spice it up.
Please let me know if you have other ideas! Have you baked bread with vegetable before and how they turned out?
