I love rainbow. Who doesn’t?
When I was little, over the rainbow was one of my favourite English song (and it still is).
And I always have goosebumps everytime I see full double rainbow.
The only problem I don’t really like from rainbow is rainbow foods. They look very pretty, yes. But making it is slightly less fun. Why? Because I don’t like to do dishes and I don’t have dishwasher and I don’t like looking at dirty dishes mountain in my kitchen. That simple.
But this bread is an exception. Just divide the dough into how many colours you want to have. No dishes needed 😉
I took the recipe from the gorgeous Jamie Oliver’s website (I love his recipes!) and modified a bit.
- 1 kg bread flour
- 625 ml tepid water
- 30g fresh yeast / 7g dried yeast
- 2 tbsp sugar
- a pinch of salt
- flour for dusting
- food colouring
- Place all ingredients (except water) in mixing bowl. Use dough attachment.
- Use slow speed on your mixer and pour water little by little.
- Let the mixer knead for 7 to 10 minutes or until the dough has nice and smooth surface.
- Let the dough rest until double in size (approx. 30 to 45 minutes)
- Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. And add some colour to each part.
- Knead each part until the colour blends well.
- Using rolling pin, flatten the dough into long rectangular. Set aside. Repeat the process.
- Stack all the dough and flatten it a bit again just enough until you can roll it.
- Place the rainbow dough into bread pan (spray with cooking spray first). And let it rest once again for at least 30 minutes.
- Bake the bread in preheated oven for 30 minutes in 180°C.
- Tap the bottom of the pan after 30 minutes to check the bread. If it sounds hollow then its done. Otherwise bake it some more.
- Take the bread out of the pan and place on a cooling rack.

ps. I don’t remember who took the photos, I think it was me though, because they don’t look that good 😀
