Ingredients Needed For 2 Ingredient Yogurt Bread Recipe
Self-rising flour: You’ll need to start off with this pantry staple. Since it already has salt and a leavening agent added in, you won’t need to use any additional baking powder or baking soda.
Yogurt: Greek yogurt beautifully replaces the oil or butter that you’d usually need for a bread recipe. It adds the moisture and softness you need, while also bringing some delicious tanginess and flavor.
****EAZYTIP: Ingredients like common seasonings, and oil don’t count towards the ingredient list because most people have these basic items in the pantry.

- Keep adding more flour a little at a time until you get a soft, manageable ball.

Questions You Might Have
I can’t find self-rising flour. What can I do?
That’s not a problem. You can make your own self-rising flour eazy peazy by adding baking powder, salt, and flour together. You’ll find the perfect proportions for making your own homemade self-rising flour for this recipe, the easy peazy way!
The crust on my bread is too crunchy for my liking.
Ok, not a problem. The super easy fix for that is to brush on some melted butter as soon as it comes out of the oven. Also, it helps to store the bread in a plastic bag that’s tightly closed. Lastly, toasting the bread less will help keep the crust on the softer side.

- 2 1/2 cups Self Rising Flour (see notes)
- 1 1/2 cups Plain Greek Yogurt
- Starting otu with a large bowl, combine the yogurt with 1 1/2 cups of flour. Get the two combined so that the dough looks ragged/shaggy.
- Add the remaining dough and stir until the mixture forms a smooth dough. (see notes)
- Line a loaf pan with parchment paper (or grease it very well).
- Roll the dough to roughly form the shape of the pan's dimensions. Drop the dough in the loaf pan.
- Using a sharp knife, lightly score the bread with 5 - 6 slices in the top of the dough.
- Cover with a damp cloth and preheat the oven to 375F (180C).
- When the oven is heated to temperature, remove the cloth off the bread and bake for 30 - 40 minutes. (see notes).
- Remove and let cool for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.
1. You may or may not need extra flour. This will depend on how much water the yogurt has in it. If you're using a really thick yogurt, you'll need less flour. Be reserved with how much you add, but add extra just so that the dough is forming a nice ball, and is no longer sticky to your hands.
2. The bread is done when it's golden brown on the outside and sounds hollow when tapped on the top.
