This yogurt bread is my daughter’s favorite bread currently. I make a smaller (1 1/2 pound loaf) so that it stays fresh. This recipe is straight out of The Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook: A Master Baker’s 300 Favorite Recipes for Perfect-Every-Time Bread-From Every Kind of Machine, which I bought based on Amazon reviews and have loved! But this has become our daily bread, so to speak.
If I’ve just made the yogurt and still have the whey left from draining it, I use that instead of water. (The whey doesn’t go to waste otherwise though–my dogs and chickens love it!) Her recipe all call for gluten but I haven’t found any yet and have to say the loaves come out fine without it!
- 3/4 cup water or whey
- 1 cup plain yogurt I use whole milk
- 3 1/2 cups bread flour
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp SAF yeast or 2 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
- Combine all the ingredients in your bread machine and turn it on.
