Quick and Easy Greek Yoghurt Bread

Thursday, 1 April 2021

 Hello Dear Reader,

I had a little bit of greek yoghurt in the fridge that really needed using up, it was, I have to admit, a little past its use by date, but it was still looked and smelled perfect so I thought I would put it in a loaf of bread and it worked a treat. It adds a wonderful softness and flavour to the bread and I think it also improved the texture of the final loaf. 

If you throw a couple of ice cubes in the bottom of the oven after you've popped the loaf in the oven to bake you will get a crisper, crunchier crust, this loaf was no exception, still warm from the oven, slathered in butter, it was crisp on the outside and lovely and soft on the inside. Give it a whirl today.

To the bowl of a Thermomix, add 200 grams of warm water and 10 grams of instant yeast. Mix on speed 2 for 2 minutes 

The add 425 grams of bread flour of choice, a teaspoon each of salt and raw sugar and 100 grams of greek yoghurt 

Knead for 6 minutes 

Transfer to an oiled bowl and let prove in a warm spot for about and half an hour or until doubled in size and springy to the touch

Scrape dough onto a floured surface 

Stretch into a longish rectangle 

And the roll up from the short end into a log shape, keeping the seam underneath and tucking the end under 

Transfer to a oiled and floured bread tin, cover with a damp tea towel and let prove again in a warm spot till doubled in size. Preheat oven to 200C

Brush with a little water and sprinkle on sesame seeds, slash bread with a sharp knife or bakers lame 

And bake in a pre-heated 200 C oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and smelling wonderful. 

Hope you have a lovely day, whatever you are doing.
