    How much wine to use in purple merlot bread?  Do you replace all the water with wine?  Any other considerations?

    just a guess but I would go half and half with the liquid ingredient. experiment. I need to take the time to do some baking.

    add walnuts that will give you a nice purple color too.

    I went half and half and it came out real good.  Not a strong wine flavor but a good purple tint.

    Next time I'm going to try 1.5C wine and .5C water.
