Beet bagels and bread

This was just another experiment with beet in bread...this time I made two versions, one as a boule and half portion I made bagels.  I found the bagels retained more of their wonderful pinkish colour than the boule.
Boule before baking...look at the beautiful pink! Unfortunately, the colour disappeared after baking.




As for the bagels, they managed to retain some colour still but not all, just a nicely pink hue on the inside and a deeper pink for crust

Anyway, the bagel tasted really good!
Last but not least, I would like to wish all my fellow bloggers to have a wonderful and Happy Easter!

  4. They sure look really good! The color before baking is beautiful. I have not tried making bagels yet...I don't think my baking experience is up there yet!

  5. That color is riveting! I must be honest though. I think the muted color that you ended up with is best for sandwiches.I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  7. Your bagel is picture perfect and I know my bagels! I cannot get a decent one in MN so maybe I should be looking at making them. Using beets was inspired!

  9. Wow! That pre-baking color is crazy! Too bad it didn't survive baking, but it's still got a nice reddish tint. Looks very yummy!

  10. The same thing with purple yam, it doesn't retain it's color too, it turns greenish instead. Still, that's a lovely bread, fresh homemade bread's the BEST!

    Happy Easter, Jeannie!

  13. Doesn't matter about the colour as long as it tastes good! This always seem to happen, a wide difference between the colours, before and after baking/cooked.

  27. I once made a beet bread and it also turned back to a bland color. I can't imagine what happens to the color of the beets.
