Flavoured with energy-boosting, antioxidants-loaded beetroot juice and stuffed with rich, creamy caramelized milk (aka dulce de leche), this homemade bread pull-apart is the treat for the whole family. It's perfect for breakfast, snack or even dessert.

  • 200 ml Organic beetroot juice
  • 40 g Butter
  • 380 g Organic bread flour
  • 30 g Coconut sugar (or raw sugar)
  • 7 g Dried yeast
  • 30 g Cacao nibs
  • 1/3 tsp Black salt (or regular sea salt)
  • 1 Medium egg, separated
  • 12 tsp Dulce de leche for filling
  • 1 tsp Desiccated coconut flakes for topping
  1. Place the beetroot juice and butter in a heatproof jug and microwave on High for 1 minute or until the butter has melted. Stir well and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Combine the 380 grams of flour, coconut sugar, yeast, cacao nibs and salt in the mixing bowl of your stand mixer fitted with a dough hook on low speed. Add in beetroot juice-butter mixture and egg yolk. Mix for 15 minutes or until very smooth and elastic. If the dough is still sticky, add a little bit more flour, a couple of teaspoons at a time.
  3. Transfer to a lightly-oiled bowl. Cover with a clean tea towel and set aside for 60-90 minutes or until dough doubles in volumn.
  4. Grease a regular loaf pan and line with baking paper. Set aside.
  5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until dough returns to its original size. Divide into 12 even portions. Cover and rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Flatten a piece of dough ball and place a teaspoon of dulce de leche in the centre. Bring the edges of the dough up and over to enclose the filling. Roll into a smooth ball. Repeat with the rest of dough balls and filling. Place them into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Cover loosely with a clean tea towel. Set aside for 45 minutes or until dough balls have risen almost to the top edge of the pan.
  8. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Brush the surface of bread with the reserved egg white and sprinkle the desiccated coconut flakes over. Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and cool briefly before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room-temperature.

Wow, looks great and yummy :)

I understand that beetroot are pickled beets. Is this pickled beet juice?

DEZMOND 8/2/21 13:40

Looks very attractive with those bubbles! Rote Bete Saft is the nastiest thing to drink, but it is such a creative thing to use in cooking. Where are you from? Judging from that juice name Germany or Scandinavia?

@New Classic r
No, it's not pickled juice. You can use freshly pressed beetroot juice too.

I’ve seen beetroot paired with chocolate before but I’ve never tried it. It definitely gives the bread a beautiful colour.
