Cheese and Yogurt Quick Bread

I’m always obsessed with finding new and quick recipes. I recently came across a savory sour cream quick bread recipe which looked promising and also allowed me to lighten up the recipe by using Greek strained yogurt instead of sour cream.

This bread is very simple to make. You just need one bowl and you stir everything by hand. It reminded me of making my Cheese Beer Bread though there’s no beer in this recipe.

The Greek strained yogurt makes the bread very moist and also reduces the calories and fat content.

Overall, I liked this bread but didn’t love it. I was hoping for a texture more like a yeast bread, and this one isn’t. I might try the sour cream version next time and see if it is different.

  1. the recipe doesn’t work…..i don’t know what did i do wrong.
    when i mix the batter i could tell bit dry….

    • can you explain what you mean by it didn’t work? Also did you make sure to use greek yogurt rather than regular yogurt?

  2. yes,I used Greek yoghurt, when i mix all ingredient was so dry. I double check recipe…. My bread like a piece of brick. Also i didn’t over mix them, I’m a pastry chef.

    The bread looks nice and i love cheese bread….

    • I’m not sure what the issue is. I didn’t have any issues and I slightly adapted it from another recipe linked at the bottom which posts many people who made it fine too

  3. This recipe came out looking good.  But it tasted like nothing. It wasn’t for me personally.
