This is the first recipe I've tried through Pinterest, an online pin board where you get to 'pin' different things you find on websites that interest you. Kinda like tearing out a page (a recipe, deco idea, etc) from a magazine for you to remember. The cool thing about Pinterest is that it's interactive so you get to see other peoples 'pins' and re-pin them, or better yet, try them for yourself!
I've been pinning lots of recipes, quilts, craft and remodel ideas for a start, I plan on pinning bike and run stuff later, but for now, here's the bread recipe I re-pinned from another user and actually baked up for myself.
The creator of this recipe calls it her Chocolate-Vanilla Marbled Bread but after I made it and tried a piece, I didn't really taste the vanilla and mostly tasted the chocolate and yogurt because I used Greek yogurt which is much stronger in taste than simple yoplait yogurt (which I hate) and I try never to use sour cream (which is an option of the original recipe). Not that the taste was bad, I just wanted to let you know the reason for the name change...Also, baking time was more like 60-65 mins.
Marbled Yogurt Bread
Makes 1 Loaf
1/4 C Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 C Milk, divided (I used Half & Half)
1 1/2 C Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/4 C Plain Greek Style Yogurt (or Vanilla Flavored!)
1/2 C Unsalted Butter (room temp)
3/4 C plus 2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Eggs (room temp)
1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla
- Butter and lightly flour a loaf pan then line the bottom with a strip of parchment paper.
-Melt the Chocolate with 1/4 cup of the Milk in the microwave, on high, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth. Set aside.
-In a separate bowl, whisk the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt.
-In a small bowl, whisk the Yogurt, 1/4 cup Milk, and Vanilla.
-In another bowl beat Butter and Sugar until light and fluffy. Add Eggs one at a time. Then add the Flour mixture and Yogurt mixture, alternating.
-Spoon half of the batter into a separate bowl and add the melted Chocolate mixture and fold in.
-Pour half of the Vanilla Batter into the loaf pan, then pour all the the Chocolate Batter in, and finally top with remaining Vanilla Batter.
-Run a knife through the two batters, without over mixing, to make a marbled effect.
-Bake at 325 for about 60 - 65 minutes or until toothpick test clean.
