Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time2 hrs


  • 100 ml milk
  • 145 ml water - lukewarm
  • 1 sachet dried or quick yeast
  • 2 tbs oil - rapeseed or similar
  • 350 g strong white bread flour
  • 150 g beetroot - grated
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Add the yeast to water and milk and whisk in until dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and bring together to a rough and shaggy dough.
  • Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until stretchy. Place the dough back in the bowl, and cover. The dough is wet, so it's easiest to mix in a stand mixer.
  • Allow to rise for hour or so, until light and puffy, and doubled in size.
  • Knock back and form into a loaf shape. Transfer to a buttered 500g loaf tin, cover, and leave to proof, for another hour or so.
  • Bake at 200°C/Gas mark 6 for 40 minutes. It's done when it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
