I baked it with the Greek yoghurt that i initially was thinking of tossing out. I am glad I came across this recipe. It was such a delicious bread, taste even better than a butter cake. I would definitely bake it again.

Very versatile, I made some changes. I substituted oils and used coconut instead. I also omitted lemon juice and used a sachet of lemonade powder, also added blueberries and red currents as a patriotic nod to the 4th of July to celebrate the holidays. Delicious and very well received. Thank you !

Have this in the oven, baking now. I used Greek pineapple yogurt with small bits of pineapple in it, to which I added some chopped fresh cranberries. Skipped the lemon juice and used an eighth of a teaspoon of almond flavoring and a half teaspoon of vanilla. The batter tasted delicious, and the house smells heavenly. Will make an icing from confectioner's sugar and milk to top it off when it cools. What an easy recipe and lovely welcome to spring!

I've made this bread several times. It's so easy to change around. Sometimes I use vanilla yogurt add almond extract to personal taste and add one cup blueberries. Another is, try orange flavoring with peach. We use this bread in our strawberry shortcake desert.

Added 1 tsp lemon extract to make it more flavorable. It's also good with chopped walnuts. I'm going to try it with bluberry yogurt and vanilla extract too!
