Purple Sweet Potato Milk Loaf

Recently I have been reading up on adding colors to bakes and bread naturally.

I usually try to refrain from tinting edibles too much - including buttercream, cakes and cookies - so I love fondant! :p However, I also love colors in cakes and such. So I came to realise that we can add fruit powders into cakes and bread.

I got some fruit powder from Kitchen Capers, and was happy to see that they have the purple sweet potato powder. I used it to modify this really awesome whipping cream bread.

Oh.... Lately I reverted to taking tea. Probably had enough of 3-in-1 coffee :p

I am also starting to use jam for my little one's breakfast (18 months old). I choose St. Dalfour because it has less additives such as coloring and flavoring. Though it contains thickener, like fruit pectin, I think it's still quite acceptable. No time to make own jam, you know haha!
