This orange vanilla yogurt bread uses Greek yogurt to give it a ton of moisture. It is so easy to make and can easily be frozen!
I have to admit, I just love making homemade bread (and baking in general). I probably average about 2 loaves per week of my homemade beer bread and if we don't have that with dinner, I will usually whip up a batch of my easy homemade biscuits…..and I can't remember the last time I bought English muffins, thanks my my homemade English muffins recipe (although I guess, technically, that isn't baking, since they are cooked on a griddle – but let's not quibble!)
But the bottom line is, my children prefer when my baking takes a little bit of a turn towards the sweet, and this orange vanilla yogurt bread quickly became one of their favorites! I first got them “hooked” on orange-flavored breads when they first tried my orange cranberry muffins, but they often ask me to leave the cranberries out (at least, my husband and daughter do). There isn't a single thing in this orange vanilla bread that they don't like (although maybe one time I will add some cranberries to the recipe to see if they like it!)
This recipe uses Greek yogurt to give it a TON of moisture, but because it does, you are going to want to use parchment paper to line your pan. As you know, I am a HUGE fan of parchment paper when it comes to baking because it makes clean-up so easy but, in this case, it is going to help you remove your orange-vanilla yogurt bread from the pan without leaving a large chunk of the bread in the bottom of the pan!
I used coconut oil in this recipe and while I am a huge fan of coconut oil, I realize that not everyone is. If you don't have coconut oil (or don't want to use it), you can always substitute an equal amount of melted butter or (as a last resort) vegetable oil.
