yogurt quick bread

Borrowed from grouprecipes.com and modified both for personal tastes and ingredient shortages a couple of times.

This is a very nice bread slightly sweet, very tangy, and moist.

Savory flavor, tender texture and a crunchy crust make this bread a
good all-purpose accompaniment.

I tend to use my own yogurt. I also tend to over culture my yogurt.
Some people may not like the tang of the yogurt most of which can be
countered with a little extra baking soda OR culturing the yogurt for
a normal time instead of my 12+ hours.

* no buttermilk so used yogurt... nummy

* Added 2tb vital gluten and baked in the roaster. This seems to help
the falling problem.

* Time is still an issue. Perhaps raise the temp a bit in the roater
next time.

* Melted the butter with the yogurt over a low flame.

V1.1 (20091107)

*sugar -> sugar, brown. This tastes most like gramma's bread.

*flour -> pastry flour (it is all I have at present)

*baked in nesco baking/roaster This is bonus but does require a bit
longer bake time. Taste is improved to me, texture is vastly
improved. This baking method is more likely to fall after removing
from the heat. A bit more gluten in the flour (think bread flour)
should do the trick

*I think the butter melting needs to be handled differently, possibly
melted in the butter milk slowly.

*smells good so far.

V1.0 (20091106)

followed Pleclare's recipe exactly, baked in oven.

  1. This looks like an interesting bread. Yogurt is a good solid ingredient.
