Bread Baking: Yogurt and Honey Bread

[Photograph: Donna Currie]

I use yogurt in bread quite often but usually it's a small addition. This time, the liquid in the recipe is entirely yogurt. To counteract its tartness, I added a generous amount of honey. The resulting bread has a dark brown crust, a soft, moist interior and a small crumb. There's still a hint of tartness, followed by a mild sweetness.

It's not a super-sweet bread, so you could use it for just about anything. I like it toasted, but toasted or not, it makes a killer peanut butter sandwich.

You can use any commercial Greek-style plain yogurt or even the non-Greek-style. You could also strain out some of the whey with a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
