Yoghurt Bread


It is amazing how fast the year flies. It is already autumn and World Bread Day is knocking on my door. And because baking a bread with yoghurt for this day is somehow traditionally for me, I decided to bake again a Yoghurt bread in this year.

As preferment I decided to use Pâte Fermentée. I did not use this preferment for a bread for quite some time. I don’t know why because Pâte Fermentée is such a patient preferment. While Sourdough or Poolish are not willing to wait when they reach their peak the Pâte Fermentée will sit in the fridge until the baker finds time to come to kitchen and bake.

The Bread I pull from the oven the next morning (the loaf proofed in the fridge over night) had a nice even crumb which stays moist for a long time due to the yoghurt. Very delicious!

Happy Bread Baking Day!
