Yogurt White Bread

June 26, 2010

Here’s a variation of my Danish Wheat Bread recipe. I added yogurt and used only white flour–the results are a delicious, slightly sour bread that bakes up moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. It’s so yummy! If you haven’t tried baking fresh bread yet, you gotta try this recipe. It’s really EASY, I promise!

3 cups all-purpose white flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
3 Tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 1/2 cup water


  • In a large glass or metal bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar and yeast, until combined.
  • Add oil, yogurt and water and stir with a spoon for 30 seconds, until a wet dough forms.
  • Cover bowl completely with a kitchen towel and set in a warm, dry place free of drafts.
  • Allow dough to set, undisturbed,  for 1 1/2 hours up to 18 hours. (The time is up to you–will not affect outcome of  bread.)
  • Pre heat oven to 520 degrees F. (Yes, really that high!)
  • Place a 6- or 7-quart Dutch Oven into oven while pre heating.
  • Once both the oven and the Dutch oven are steaming hot,carefully remove Dutch oven.
  • Pour dough into hot Dutch oven.
  • Lightly drizzle top of dough with olive oil.
  • Cover with Dutch oven lid and bake 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove cover and bake additional 5 minutes to brown top of bread.
  • Remove from oven, and remove bread from Dutch oven to cool.
  • Best to enjoy this bread fresh, but can be stored in tin foil for up to 24 hours.

    I’ve been trying different variations of this lately for fun. There is this bread here in Denmark called “gulerod brød” or “carrot bread” that has a small amount of carrot shavings and a good amount of rosemary in the dough with sea salt on top. I just tried it with this recipe and it is SO tasty! I don’t have measurements because I’m still experimenting.

    Oh! We’re eating your Spicy Lentil Soup with this recipe for dinner tonight. Can’t wait!

      OMG–is that the bread you brought me after Halloween as a thank you?? I think I ate the entire loaf myself in about 10 minutes :) I\’ll have to give it a try! I really hope you like the lentil soup. I looooove it!

    Absolutely loved this recipe! I just tried it and made a double recipe. They were delicious and it was so easy! I don’t have a dutch oven so I used an iron skillet with foil on top and it worked just fine.

    Thanks for this one. I’ll be making it often. :)
