This could possibly be our most favourite bread recipe of all time. After my husband comes home from being away, I always get out my breadmaker and make it for him. We have been eating this bread for a long, long time and I was shocked to realize from writing about it on my Facebook page that I have not posted about it. How could that be?! I had to remedy this situation immediately.
Once again, this recipe comes from the genius yet out of print cookbook: Canada’s Best Bread Machine Baking Recipes. I love this recipe because it is low in fat and yet absolutely moist and delicious.
Yummy Yogurt Dill Loaf (2 lb)
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 1/4 cup low-fat yogurt
3 egg whites
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups all purpose or bread flour
3 tbsp minced dried onion
1 tbsp dried dill
1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
Fill the loaf pan with the ingredients in the order shown in the recipe, ending with the dried herbs and yeast on top. Select the “Basic” cycle and I also personally choose the light setting for the crust. Hit start.
Remember to always check how wet or dry the dough is while it is kneading. Throughout the year, humidity changes, sometimes you will need to add a little water. In this case I had to add a little extra flour but I still wanted the dough to be moist and come together like you see above.
If you enjoy savory bread, you will love this loaf! It is so fantastic with just a little bit of butter, it also makes amazing sandwiches, grilled bread, garlic bread and…
… cheesy bread too. This is the bread that convinced me that breadmakers are miracle workers in the kitchen. I got it as an engagement present from my dad and his wife when I knew nothing about baking and it really changed our lives. Until it got stolen in Vancouver. Yes, someone stole my breadmaker, bastards. I am so glad that I invested in another one to bring back old memories, old flavours from our past. It helps make us feel at home.
