Loaf for "les filles'"


Loaf for "les filles'"
This loaf for "the girls" in three colours is made by putting together three doughs, each with a different flavour: tomato for the red, pesto with olives for the green and onion for the white.

The three different doughs fuse as they rise together in the tin before cooking, to produce an unusual bread with surprising flavours.

The best part of this recipe is when you slice open the loaf to reveal the three lovely colours before you eat it...

Remarks

If you plan to use packet tomato soup (as suggested in step 6), it will dry out the dough somewhat, so it is helpful, though not essential, to add 10% more milk than stated in the recipe.

And who are these girls, "les filles"? Juliette, Lucille and Candice, of course.
