This started out as muffins but I found that it can be baked as bread too. The lemon juice gives it a nice bite and the whole wheat bread gives it a great nutty flavor.

  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter and honey. Whisk in yogurt, egg and lemon juice.

  • In a separate bowl, sift together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon. Fold this mixture into the yogurt mixture, stirring just enough to blend. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven until top of loaf springs back when touched and a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

We think it's a delicious recipe. The taste is right for those who don't like too sweet muffins (and the others can add honey or jam in the middle before eating). I think cookig time is too long: in my oven 40 minutes max are enough or they burn on top. Read More

Extra cinnamon adds to the flavor. Less lemon juice makes it better. Read More

The texture of this bread is very good and it's not too sweet. I ended up using vanilla yogurt instead of plain added walnuts and instead of cinnamon and nutmeg I used lemon zest so that it would have an extra lemon-y flavor. Next time I think I will add more yogurt since the consistency of the batter was a bit thick (maybe I added too many dry ingredients) and I will definitely turn the heat down! I baked it at 370 for 36-37 minutes and the top got a bit burnt! Will set it at 350 next time. Read More

Nice taste easy and great for those who don't like sweet bread. However had I not added pecans I don't think it would have been as enjoyable. Read More

Pretty good taste but it needs something extra like nuts or more spice. Read More

This bread is a pretty basic quick bread but the batter is dry and with the 50 minute bake time it got a bit overdone. I made mini muffins mini loaves and a regular sized loaf. The mini muffins were done at 15 min the mini loaves at 25 and apparently the regular loaf probably should've been 30-35 min not 50. I used peach yogurt (all I had) and used 3 6 oz containers. I think I'd add one more egg next time to make the batter a little more runny and/or add some fruit. It's good but there's no overall fruity lemony or specific flavors. Thanks for the recipe!

I've made this several times and it's always been a hit. I usually use fat-free lemon yogurt in place of the plain yogurt and lemon juice. However I found that 50 minutes is WAY too long. I set my timer for 30 minutes and then start checking every couple minutes after that. Not too sweet so it's great to serve with soup. Read More

This bread turned out great. It had good texture a pleasant flavor and was super moist. I topped mine with a good scattering of Uncle Sam Cereal before baking that was a really nice topping to it. Read More

This was pretty good. The texture was wonderful but it was just rather bland and I had added extra spices. It was way better after cooling. Read More
