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.


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


  • 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


  • 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.

  2. No yeast breads always get my vote. This bread looks great and easy too!

  4. Bet it would be good dipped into some soup too

  5. Love it - will be making a loaf this weekend without fail!

  6. I like no yeast bread as I have never got any yeast when I fancy making bread! This looks so good! x

  7. Looks wonderful - looking forward to trying it.

  8. i'm intrigued. i love making yeast breads but i'm always looking to mix it up. think i'll have a go at this tomorrow

  9. Unusual! I'll try it with walnuts, that I like so much. thanks for tha idea

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

  11. Looks interesting. I'm going to try this with some olives and rosemary for the flavoring. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

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.
