Vegan Red Velvet Bread

Discover the delightful twist on the classic Red Velvet with our Vegan Red Velvet Bread recipe. Many shy away from traditional Red Velvet recipes due to their use of artificial colors. However, this recipe offers a natural alternative that doesn't compromise on the iconic, rich color or taste. We've harnessed the power of beetroot to achieve a stunning dark red hue, reminiscent of chocolate, without a hint of beet flavor.

This bread, which can effortlessly transition into a cake, is not just a feast for the eyes but a healthy treat that even kids will love. My own child, Sofia, couldn't get enough of it!

A top tip for the best texture and flavor: allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.
