Bread baking

Ok, so I needed an excuse to try out a new Greek yogurt bread. What better excuse than Mother’s Day breakfast? I tried out a recipe from No Sugar Sweet Life for Greek Yogurt Apple Cinnamon Bread. It was delicious!

I prepared the bread the night before, so my dad and I could pop it in the oven and it would bake while we were out for a run and be ready upon our return! Preparation was super easy.

Some slicing and dicing…

Some mixing…

Ready for the fridge!

The batter was really thick, so I decided to add more Apple Cinnamon applesauce. The bread turned out very dense and the inside texture wasn’t quite bread-like. Note to self: baking is NOT like cooking, and measurements must be precise. Regardless, we all loved the bread and agreed there wasn’t even a need for a topping like butter or peanut butter!

The finished product:

Realize, some of the best-tasting foods look a little funky. I’m not afraid to go for it!
