250g (1 cup) Plain greek yogurt
40g (3 tbsp) Sugar
3g (1 tsp) Yeast
300g (2 cup) Bread flour/wheat flour
3g (1/2 tsp) Salt
30g (2 tbsp) Melted unsalted butter
50g (1/4 cup) Water-soaked raisin
Baking pan size 12x22cm
170°C (340°F) bake for 22 minutes
1. 1 egg, 250 grams (1 cup) plain greek yogurt, because the consistency of yogurt varies, the amount of yogurt can be adjusted appropriately, 40 grams (3 tablespoons) of sugar, you can reduce the amount if you use the sweet yogurt, 3 grams (1 teaspoon) yeast. Mix well, you can leave it for 5 minutes to activate the yeast.
2. 300 grams (2 cups) of bread flour/wheat flour, 3 grams (1/2 teaspoon) salt. Stir into a dough, 30 grams (2 tablespoons) of melted unsalted butter. Stir into the dough with a spatula, then let the dough rest about 20 minutes.
3. After 20 minutes remove the lid, continue mixing the dough for about 1 minute. Then cover the dough and let it ferment for about 1 hour. After 1 hour, the dough is fermented very well, sprinkle some dry flour on the mat to prevent sticking.
4. Transfer the dough to the mat, sprinkle a little more flour on top to prevent sticking, this dough is very sticky. Flatten the dough, 50 grams (1/4 cup) of water-soaked raisins, spread evenly on top of the dough. Fold in several times and wrap the raisins inside the dough. Turn over and round it, divide into 8 parts. Knead each small portion of dough, put the rounded dough into the mold, the size of the mold is 12x22cm. The 8 small doughs are soon rounded, if you don’t have a rectangular baking pan, you can use a round baking pan. Cover the dough and let it rise for about 40 minutes.
5. After 40 minutes, brush egg or milk on the surface of the dough, put in the middle of the preheated oven and bake at 170°C (340°F) for 22 minutes. It’s out of the oven, so tempting! Brush a layer of butter on the top while it’s still hot, the bread will taste even better!
