Raspberry-Lemon-Yogurt Bread

I love bread.  I really do.  I couldn’t do the whole Atkins thing.  Carbs are my thing.  Don’t judge. 

I was in the mood for some homemade bread this past week-end and I saw a recipe in Self magazine for a Raspberry-Lemon-Yogurt Bread.  It sounded healthy-ish so I decided to try it.

If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you may know that I’m kind of a disaster in the kitchen when it comes to meals….the husband is the cook in this house.  I, however, can bake up a storm….look at this baked to perfection bread…

Summer To Do (16)pn 


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup nonfat lemon yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries

How do you bake it on up?

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Coat a 1 lb loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • Combine flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  • Combine yogurt, eggs, butter, zest, and vanilla in a second bowl.
  • Toss raspberries with remaining 1 tbsp. sugar in a third bowl…so many dishes.
  • Fold yogurt mixture into dry mixture; stir to combine completely.
  • Gently fold in raspberries.
  • Scrape batter evenly into loaf pan.
  • Bake until top is golden and springs back when you gently touch it (~65 minutes)
  • Enjoy

Our Review/Changes We Would Make:

  • The lemon bread component was really good.  Good flavor and texture.
  • We would cut the raspberries up.  We folded them in whole and they just turned to mush in the bread.  I think it would be better with blueberries.  Nate hates blueberries so he disagrees.
  • I used my new Pampered Chef mini loaf pan (darn co-workers and their parties). I was pleased at how well the stoneware baked the bread.  Fancy.
    • This recipe made 3 loaves in this pan.  Hopefully the other two freeze well.  The ability to make little loaves was the main reason I purchased this pan. We try to eat fairly healthy (as in no sugary stuff) during the week and then we eat whatever we want on the week-ends. My co-workers will probably hate this pan because whatever “sweet stuff” we have left over from the week-end goes into work.  Poor co-workers!

  • We’ll definitely make this bread again!

What’s your favorite bread recipe?  Do share!

  1. I'd omit the fruit & fold in chocolate chips :D . Okay fine, poppyseeds.

  2. The yogurt in this one totally makes me want to give it a go. I'm with you on the blueberries - that would be my first pick. Wonder how it would be with cranberries (or craisins)

  3. Carbs!!! Man, I'm a total carb lover, but we're on the paleo diet right now which eliminates all grains. Sad day. But since I'm an expert cheater I might just have to try this recipe anyway. Haha!

  4. I love carbs too! And this sounds delicious! Rick would love to be one of your co-workers if you brought in treats like this. :)

  5. This sounds delish! But I can't find non-fat lemon yogurt at my grocery store, perhaps I could make some from plain yogurt, lemons and sugar? Looks yummy...

  6. YUM. This sounds like a perfect weekend breakfast bread.

  7. That looks totally scrumptious! My hubby is also the cook in the house. My job is to find new recipes (I'll have to add this one to try).

    One of my favorite bread recipes is Spiced Pumpkin Bread -
    My husband had gotten some pumpkins from a co-worker (who had just used them as Halloween decorations)....he made pumpkin puree, freezed it in quart-sized freezer bags to use when we make this recipe. Sooooo good!

  8. You had me at lemon. I think in the food world that lemons and raspberries are my 2 favourite things. If we could somehow figure out how to incorporate mint into this I'd have to eat it every day. Going to my recipe file.

  9. this looks delicious! i love anything lemon so I am definitely trying it. i have to agree on the blueberries...although i do love raspberries. and on that note, who doesn't like blueberries???! nate is crazy! they are one of my all-time fav fruits!

    my #1 love is banana bread, but i also love zucchini bread, french bread, italian bread, cinnamon chip bread, monkey bread....who am i kidding? i haven't met a piece of bread i didn't love.

  10. OMG! That looks absolutely irresistibly scrumptious! I have a banana bread that I absolutely LOVE... like, literally nothing compares, but I haven't been able to find my recipe ever since we moved. Total bummer! I totally want that loaf pan too!

  11. Yummy yumminess. You had me at raspberry....but then the lemon and the yogurt...I'm headed to the grocery first thing in the morning. :-)

  12. looks yummy! I keep seeing bread recipes with lemon flavor and have been curious. I think I'm going to try it with blueberries because Mitch may not like the raspberries. going to try it this weekend!
