Turmeric, beetroot and chilli loaf in breadmaker.

This bread is a favourite on the bar at the Queen's Head, Burnham on Crouch, Essex on a Sunday lunch time. Its colours come from turmeric and beetroot powder which miraculously separate so that the crust is red, whilst inside remains yellow. Delicious with cheese, dips or olive oil.

Made this loaf. It turned out perfectly. A lovely yellow colour and great with salami and soup. Will make it for Christmas.
