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.

Stage 6 - 5 min.
Loaf for "les filles'"
Put another piece of plain dough into the bowl and add 30 g tomato paste. If you would like a stronger tomato flavour, you can add a little powdered tomato soup (about 1/2 a sachet), as shown in the photo.

Knead until well mixed in.

Loaf for "les filles'"
Gather the red dough into a ball, transfer to a clean bowl and cover with a plastic sheet.

Stage 11 - 5 min.

Stage 12 - 20 min.
Loaf for "les filles'"

Stage 13 - 1 hour

After this, roll the dough into long "sausages" the length of your loaf tin or mould.

Loaf for "les filles'"
Preheat the oven to 460°F (240°C).

Stage 15
Loaf for "les filles'"
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 stage 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.
Keeping
Several days, preferably in a cloth bag.
