Pine Nut Bread with Greek Yogurt


This is an ultra quick no yeast bread that can be rustled up in under an hour - that's preparation, mixing and baking. It includes a slightly unusual ingredient - Greek Yogurt, but it's the yogurt that gives the bread a wonderful flavour and keeps it moist for a couple of days. I decided to put some toasted pine nuts in this one, although other nuts would work equally well, as would fresh chopped herbs, sun dried tomatoes, olives and dried fruit. The combinations are endless. Just use the quantities as a base recipe and go and experiment.


PINE NUT BREAD WITH GREEK YOGURT

| Serves: 1 Loaf | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 30 Minutes | Total Time: 45 Minutes |


Ingredients:

  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 250g Wholemeal Flour
  • 1 TSP Salt
  • 2 TSP Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Handful of toasted Pine Nuts
  • 300ml Greek Yogurt
  • 125ml Semi Skimmed Milk

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 230C/210C Fan.
  • Step 2: In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients, mix thoroughly, knead for a few minutes on a floured surface and form into a flattish round ball.
  • Step 3: Oil a baking sheet and place the bread on it, making a few slashes in the top.
  • Step 4: Bake for 25 - 30 mins - it should sound hollow when the base is tapped.

  1. Greek yogurt and pine nuts seem to be a natural. Now I see you have paired it with some grilled halloumi. Have I died and gone to heaven.

  10. Dani - walnuts sound good, I think I'm going to try walnuts and some grated courgettes or carrots in the mix next time.

  12. his turned out very soft and buttery tasting with nice spice flavors. Slices of it lasted quite awhile in a ziploc bag. Made for the Potluck tag game.

  13. This looks good but I have real issues with microwaves and won’t have one in my house – can it be baked in a regular oven?

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.


TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
