Strawberry Tea Loaf Topped With Carrot Chiffon

Strawberry Tea LoafCarrot Chiffon
  1. To make the dough in a bread maker, put all of the ingredients into the bread machine in the order listed, and set the machine to create dough. When the machine finishes, roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into four even portions. Round up, cover with plastic wrap, and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Line two loaf pans with parchment paper.
  2. Sealing side down roll each dough out to match the length of your baking pan. Turn the dough over and roll it up. Seal the ends closely. Place them seam-side down into the pans, each pan with two loaves. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. While the bread ferments, we start to make the cake by beating the oil, carrot juice and vanilla sugar until creamy and emulsified. Sift in the flour and stir until just combined. Add in egg yolks and mix completely.
  4. Whip the egg whites, salt and lemon juice until soft peaks form. Beat in the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter to lighten it, and then fold in the rest of the whites. Pour the cake batter over the bread. Sprinkle some coconut flakes over and bake in a preheated 165C/330F oven for about 45-60 minutes. After baking, immediately tear off the baking paper to avoid the cake shrinking too much.

Can't have enough recipes with strawberries but in a bread is genius.

How gorgeous this loaf is? I absolutely adore the two colors and layers, and of course the flavor of strawberries makes it very unique, I wish I could taste one slice!

You bake the most divine breads. What a pretty loaf!

I officially crown you the Queen of Bread Baking! :) Another fantastic recipe!

zalevchik 19/4/10 10:08

Dear Angie, I join the chorus of those delighted with your tremendous recipes.
As for the Strawberry Tea Loaf I'd like to clear up: did you just used the contents of the teabags in the dough or did you make tea and afterwards used it for the dough?

nora@ffr 19/4/10 10:35

yummm!!!! looking greatt!! love the colours :) angie ye a such a greta cook!! :)

Angie's Recipes 19/4/10 11:12

zalevchik: I used the contents of the teabags.

Patty 19/4/10 20:42

I cannot BELIEVE how gorgeous this bread is. It is AMAZING! How do you come up with these things? I'm afraid to try this as my bread making skills are seriously lacking. I made a bread not too long ago and it came out as hard as a rock. Terrible. I'll just have to pretend that I actually tasted your delicious bread!

Katy ~ 23/4/10 10:52

Beautiful texture on this tea bread, and I love the 2-toned color; it adds so much eye appeal and makes me want to have a nice slice of this delicious bread. Well done. You are such a gifted baker. I love to see what you're cooking.
