    A recipe I got from a boss of mine years ago. Use low-fat yogurt if you want a more sour taste. Cooking time includes both time for dough to rise twice and time for baking.

      The bread came out very soft on the inside and thick chewy crust on the outside. However, I think 2 Tablespoons of salt is too much and my bread tasted too salty. I would reduce it to 1 Tablespoon the next time. This recipe makes a lot of bread.

      Exquisite. Of course, I altered it some since I didn't have gluten flour (just regular), and I did use nonfat yogurt, but it was wonderful. Will be making it again for a French dinner.
