Best eaten the same day, and in the Lahey house, one loaf barely lasts an hour so she usually makes at least two! It’s absolutely delicious warm with butter, and/or your favorite jam or honey. You can even toast it if you like!

Ingredients:
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 ¾ cups unsweetened yogurt
1 cast iron skillet (handy for demonic apocalypse too!) – Okay, the truth is, any cookie sheet will do for baking this yummy bread

Instructions:
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2) The cast iron skillet doesn’t need any preparation, but if you’re using a cookie sheet, be sure to grease and flour it.

3) Sift together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a large bowl.

4) In a mixing bowl, beat together the egg and yogurt, and pour the mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix everything together to make a soft and sticky dough.

5) On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for a few minutes until it’s smooth, then shape the dough into a round loaf about two inches deep.

6) Transfer the dough to the iron skillet (or cookie sheet). Make a cross shape in the center of the top of the dough.

7) Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes or until the bread is a golden brown color.

8) Transfer the loaf to a wire rack and cool slightly before serving—if you can wait that long!
