Celery Bread - More Fibre can only be good for you


My first attempt at celery bread recipe by Alex Goh Magic Bread. I like the idea of having vegetables in your bread. A big plus is this is the only way to get my kids to eat the green, fibrous celery. Just blend till fine and add to the dough before the first proof. Yes, they ate 200g of celery and asked for more.


Instead of ham, I added the herbed pancetta that I bought from Tuscany. It gave off a smoky aroma and herby taste to the bread.



It's the bread for you if you like a soft inside.


I did not follow the original method on moulding. Instead, I just shaped the dough into whatever pans I have at home and really pretty much just to my own fancy and whims.

Here, I cling-wrapped each loaf after completely cooling off to maintain freshness.

  1. Very crafty of you to hide celery in the bread. The herbed pancetta is to die for and the bread looks very fluffy. Nice!

    1. Thanks! I did confess to the kids AFTER they ate it. They weren't so keen on further helpings after that!

    1. Hi there, ok, I will need to list it out in greater detail some time. For the time being, based on my memory, it's 200g blended celery, 50g diced celery, 50g ham/pancetta, 400g flour (325 bread flour, 75 plain), 1/2 tsp baking powder, 20g milk powder, 8g salt, 8g yeast, 30g egg.

  5. These look really delicious! Your bread loaf is beautifully done and I can see the fine texture. I like the idea of hiding vegetables in the bread and the herbed pancetta sounds like a really great addition.
