Honey and Yogurt Bread


Honey and yogurt are common additions to bread doughs and for good reasons: each imparts distinctive (and subtle) flavor and also helps to keep the bread moister for longer (meaning it will keep longer after baking). In this recipe, they do just that, plus the loaf is brushed with milk and then sprinkled with poppy seeds. By the way, besides helping the seeds adhere, the milk promotes browning of the crust during baking.


200 milliliters warm water
1 container plain yogurt
4 tablespoons honey
300 grams wheat flour
200 grams whole wheat flour
1 packet yeast
milk (to taste)
poppy seeds (to taste)


1Mix the yeast into the warm water and place in the pan of a bread machine with the yogurt, honey and flour.
2Select the dough program.
