Lemon Yogurt Bread

Yogurt Bread
 Yogurt is the secret ingredient to this light and refreshing bread! It is so moist you'll find yourself nibbling your way through the whole loaf!

Perfect for a Mother's Day or other Spring Brunch, you'll find this recipe a keeper you'll use over and over.  Want to use a different flavor yogurt? Go for it! It is delicious in any flavor you want to use, so feel free to change it up if you want to.

The pink china in this photo is my grandmother's china. I can't think of Mother's Day without thinking of her. Her birthday is late April, just before Mother's Day. She loved the color Pink and she loved Roses. She had a few rose bushes outside of her little home.
Every spring the women in our large extended family plant pink flowers to remember her and honor her. I am privileged to have been the recipient of her china, and I treasure it. Mothers Day is the perfect day for a tea party to honor her.


Credit for this recipe goes to my daughter. I think she snagged a clipping from my recipe files that I had never tried, when she left for college. She made it, and turned it into her specialty. So, Every time I make it, I will forever think of my sweet girl!  The perfect recipe to do with our Mothers Day tea party. 

Here we are at her wedding just a few months ago.

This recipe is lightly sweet. I recommend serving it with a light glaze on top, rather than increasing the sugar. I love that it is not overly sweet. So many breads are nearly cupcakes, and I love this lightly lemony sweet bread.

Play around with your yogurt! Vanilla or Lemon is devine, but feel free to mix it up with any flavor such as a lime, raspberry, or other!

Let's get baking!
