A yeast bread lightly sweetened with blueberries, honey, and blueberry greek yogurt. Good paired with coffee or tea.
Ingredients
  • 2 tsp dry active yeast
  • ½ cup blueberry greek yogurt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 egg white
Instructions
  1. Mix yeast, warm water (~110 degrees F), and honey. Let sit 5 minutes
  2. Mix together yogurt and milk to equal 1 cup and only add ½ cup of the yogurt/milk mix to the yeast honey water mix. Then, slowly mix in 1½ cup flour until consistent.
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough sit for 30 minutes, or until about doubled in size.
  4. Add salt and butter to remaining yogurt/milk mixture and microwave ~30 seconds, or until butter is melted and can be stirred into a consistent mix. Let it cool back to lukewarm while bread is rising.
  5. After bread has risen, punch down and mix in yogurt/milk/butter/salt mixture. Then add 1 to 1 & ¼ cup remaining flour. If you add too much flour, just add a couple more tbsp of water. Dough should be slightly stiff and not stick to hands but still very pliable.
  6. Spread a handful of remaining flour on hard surface and knead dough for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Clean out bowl and coat with butter or oil and add kneaded dough to greased bowl, turning to coat with grease. Cover with plastic and leave it to rise until double, about an hour.
  8. Punch down dough, fold in frozen blueberries, by stretching bread out and folding to enclose the berries. Form into two round loaves. Place loaves on buttered pan and let rise 45 minutes.
  9. Brush bread with egg white and place in preheated oven at 425 F for 10 minutes then turn oven down to 350 F, never taking bread out of oven. Just turn down temperature and set a 30 min timer right after 10 min timer goes off.
Notes
Store in the refrigerator, toast each slice when ready to eat.
