I thought it turned out a little dry. The dough was very thick and sticky, not typical quick bread dough. Next time, I'll add more oil.
I have made this twice in the last 2 weeks as my family just loves this bread. I made a couple of substitutions as well. I used reduced fat vanilla yogurt for the plain yogurt and cut back to 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. I also substituted baking Splenda for the sugar. Dough was thick both times I made it too but was able to spread it into 3 layers. Tried to swirl bread the first time but was a bit messy. So didn't bother the second time No one noticed :) I love homemade bread and this one is just delicious!!
Very moist and not overly sweet. The batter was more like a dough, but still easy enough to layer with cinnamon and brown sugar mixture. I will try adding finely chopped nuts next time. It's a keeper!
Delicious! Will definitely make again.
Yes, the dough is very very thick. Was difficult to manage when layering it. I used whole wheat pastry dough instead of all purpose.
But the outcome was great! My family of 5 finished this the day I made it. No leftovers
Oh, and i only had strwberry banana yogurt on hand! Was nervous about that, but you couldnt even tell! Very tasty bread. Easy and simple ingredients.
