Bread Baking Day #55: Colored Bread

2012 is ending on a tasty and colorful note thanks to Bread Baking Day #55.  This month's hostess, Katha, chose Colored Bread as the theme.

Making this bread was my Christmas day project.  I chose a braided egg bread from the Red Star Yeast website, and added coloring to each of the three pieces.  While I had wanted to use holiday colors (red and green), I was, alas, out of red coloring, so I used what I had available.

In this case, it was green, yellow, and violet.  King Cake colors.  Guess I'm ahead of the game here.  ;)

Regardless of the colors, this bread turned out great.  Besides tasting delicious, it's fun to see what patterns each slice has, and it's very tempting to just keep slicing.

Thanks to Katha for her choice of theme, and thanks to Zorra for creating such a delightful bread baking event.  I'm looking forward to the challenges of 2013.  

The roundup will be available after the first of the year at Katha's website.
