I'm always on the lookout for new quickbread recipes and when I found this lemon yogurt bread recipe I knew this one was one I had to try. After reading through the ingredients, it sounded as if it could possibly be a healthy substitute for buttery pound cake. After baking this and giving it the good old taste test I found this to be a real winner! My husband, his co-workers, and my little sister all loved it, and so did I! I think the next time I have guests over for tea or coffee I'll be serving them a slice of this moist lemony bread.

Yields about 12 slices

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Baking time: 45 minutes


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup lemon yogurt (substitute: tangy sour cream)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 325 F and lightly grease a 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and baking powder. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add in the egg, lemon yogurt, olive oil and lemon juice. Slowly combine all of the ingredients together until just moist. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake it in the oven for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in comes out clean. Cool the bread and slice.
