I had looked at the pictures she posted, and was also impressed with the colorfulness of the bread. So this weekend, I decided to sit down with the boys and make our own version of rainbow bread.
I didn't have any red food coloring, so all I had to use was blue, green, and yellow. I broke the dough into three sections and had each of the kids work the color into the dough.
It took a long, long time...
...but finally the dough balls were evenly colored. The boys waited eagerly while the dough rose, and watched as I formed the loaf into a spiral of bright colors. I think the worst part of the waiting was after the bread was cooked, because they had to wait an hour for the bread to cool before I could slice it open.
But it was worth the wait!
I had planned to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the bread, but the kids wanted grilled cheese.
Even the dog wanted some, ha! Both the younger boys want me to make this for their birthdays. Sounds wonderful to me. We can't wait to make this again.
