Lemon Yogurt Bread

quick and easy yummy too

Prep: 15 min. Bake : 45 min. + cooling (found this in a magazine)

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or bread flour) ( I use all organic ingredients)

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teasp. salt

1/2 teasp. baking soda

1/4 teasp. baking powder

1 egg

1 cup lemon yogurt

1/3 cup canola oil (olive oil works to )

1 tbls. lemon juice ( you can add jest if you like, also)

Directions heat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar,salt,baking soda, and baking powder.

In another bowl , combine the egg, yogurt, oil and lemon juice. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour into an 8 in. X 4 in. X 2 in. loaf pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool

10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. YIELD : 1 loaf (12slices)
