"Psychedelic" sandwich bread

"Psychedelic" sandwich bread

This amazing-looking loaf uses a basic sandwich bread recipe, but half the dough is coloured yellow with turmeric, the other half black with squid ink.

The two colours are then rolled up together to give the spiral effect you can see in the photo. The outside is coated with sesame seeds.

This surprising bread is full of flavour and, with its "psychedelic" look, it makes spectacular sandwiches and canapés.

Leave to rest for 1 hour.
Stage 7

Stage 8
4 min.

Stage 10
2 min.

4 min.
"Psychedelic" sandwich bread : Photo of step #11 Glaze the roll, then coat with sesame seeds.

Stage 13
1 hour
"Psychedelic" sandwich bread : Photo of step #13 Bake at 360°F (180°C) for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Turn out and leave to cool on a wire rack.
Stage 14
"Psychedelic" sandwich bread : Photo of step #14 You can use the same idea to combine a plain dough with chocolate (brown) or any other colourful idea that may spring to mind.

Remarks

This idea of rolling two (or more) different colours together also works with brioche dough, for sweeter flavours and a moister texture.

You can use any other seeds you like instead of sesame on the outside, and even add some to the dough.
