    I made this yesterday to go with loaded potato soup. I had to use Greek plain non fat yogurt instead of plain regular yogurt. It turned out wonderful. The cut of the bread is beautiful & supper moist. I also used 2% cheddar cheese, and whole grain dijion mustard. My husbanded loved it. I did add the whole 2 teaspolns of caraway seeds, my husband loves caraway seeds. I will make again for sure.

    This is so good. I left out the caraway seeds and tablespoon of Dijon mustard. I added black pepper and 1t. dried chives and used a little less cheese but should have used the full amount. This definitely needs more salt. It's very moist and uses plain yogurt. I didn't have quite enough yogurt, just had 5.3oz so I?added enough whole milk to it to equal the 8oz. that was needed. I made this in a 9"x5" loaf pan, as specified, for 30 minutes. I'd definitely make this again.I got this recipe from Taste of Home's Complete Guide To Baking hardcover cookbook.
