I just love yoghurt bread. It's got such a beautiful, rich flavour thanks to the malt powder, honey and balsamic vinegar, and it pairs beautifully with cheese, or toasted with an extra drizzle of honey. To me, this is the perfect bread to take with you on a picnic with family and friends, as it's such a showstopping loaf. This really is a very easy recipe that delivers amazing results!


  • 240 g water
  • 1 tsp dry active yeast
  • 350 g strong white bread flour
  • 150 g rye flour (light rye or any other rye flour of your choice)
  • 120 g Greek style yoghurt
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 10 g honey or maple syrup if serving to baby under 12 months
  • 1 tsp diastatic malt powder optional, or barley malt syrup
  • 20 g balsamic vinegar


  1. Place the water and yeast in the mixing bowl. Warm 2 Min. / 37°C / Speed 2. Add the strong white bread flour, rye flour, yoghurt, salt, honey, malt powder and balsamic vinegar and knead 1 Min. / Kneading function. Leave to rise covered in the mixing bowl for 1-2 hours until doubled in size.

  2. Tip onto a floured surface and pat down into a rectangle the size of a 19x9cm loaf tin. Shape into a loaf by rolling and pulling the dough toward you while patting down the seam each step along the way until you end up with a sausage the length of your tin. Place seam side down in the floured tin, dust the top with flour and cover with a shower cap. Leave to rise for another 45 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 250°C / 230°C Fan / Gas Mark 10.

  4. Once risen, uncover the loaf and score with a scoring knife a few times. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, turning down the oven after 15 minutes to 220°C / 200°C Fan / Gas Mark 8. Remove and tip onto a wire cooling rack. Leave to cool before cutting into it.

    Sophia Is diastatic malt powder the same as diastatic malt flour? Where is the best place to buy in UK? Thanks

      The diastatic malt powder is only the concentrated part that is used in diastatic malt flour. It is a bit like buying self raising flour vs plain flour and using baking powder. 🙂

    Hi Sophia I don’t seem to be able to buy either diastatic malt powder or barley malt syrup in New Zealand where I live. Is there another alternative?
