I’ve never had turmeric bread before. I’m not sure if I’ve seen it before, either. I just love its color and I thought it would be a good idea to make yellow bread. Also, I’ve been trying to find ways to use turmeric as it is one of those magical foods. You can read more about health benefits of turmeric here.
Besides their lovely color, these breads have a very nice flavor coming from turmeric. Its tempting scent filled all the house and everyone got curious about the food in the oven. They looked so pleased when they saw this shining turmeric buns. They have a soft texture, too. Well, I can say that these breads are very much like savory pastries sold at bakery shops. What is more, I used whole wheat flour and oat flour. If you want healthy, yummy and lovely breads, try these! I highly recommend you to eat several of these when they are newly baked. Just ignore gaining weight! These are healthy!
