I’d never really heard of a “quick bread” before, probably because I like using yeast, and the superb taste you get when you allow bread the time for a really nice rise. But you know what, when we have busy lives and hungry children, time is not always our friend, and something quick is needed. Enter this recipe!
However, if you do have the time (weekends are great for homemade baked bread), and want to make something with yeast, why not try my Most Amazing Cheesy Bread…Ever (if you are unsure about making yeast bread, have a look at my beginner’s guide to making bread).
I actually loved it. It’s not bread as we know it, Jim (not a Star Trek enthusiast, it just fit), but it is good.
The texture is denser than yeast bread and reminded me more of an British scone than bread, but is beyond delicious slathered with butter.
The Greek yoghurt gives it a wonderful moistness, and with just a sprinkle of cheddar on top for colour, a little lower fat feta, and only a touch of butter and sugar, this is pretty healthy (minus the slathered butter, of course!).
