I just realized that the last 3 out of 4 posts have to do with bread. I hope you don’t mind. I just have a thing for bread. . .(good thing I like to run!).
And, when it’s below freezing for multiple days in a row, it’s only natural that I would warm up the house by making a loaf of bread.
This time I opted for an easy quick bread. This cinnamon swirl yogurt quick bread did a great job of both warming the house and satisfying our taste buds!
The yogurt replaces all but a small amount of oil and keeps the bread from drying out right away. Honey (or maple syrup!) gives the bread it’s hint of sweetness.
Ribbons of cinnamon and brown sugar are swirled throughout the inside to give a hint of cinnamon in each bite. And because I really like cinnamon, a bit more of the cinnamon sugar is sprinkled on top right before baking!
Perfect with a glass of milk or a mug of coffee, this cinnamon swirl yogurt quick bread is best enjoyed while wrapped in your favorite blanket while watching the snow fall (or freezing rain, whatever part of the storm your region gets today!)!
Tips for Making Cinnamon Swirl Yogurt Quick Bread
- Treat the batter like a muffin batter. Just stir until combined. Over-stirring will make the bread dense.
- I’ve found this ratio of all-purpose flour to white whole flour to be our favorite as far as getting as much white whole wheat flour in without making it too dense and heavy. You can switch up the ratio if you want, just know that it will affect the flavor and texture.
- Bake the bread until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs. Baking the bread until the toothpick comes out completely clean will dry out the bread.
