Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cold butter or margarine
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup regular or quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt
  • Milk

Preparation

  1. 1. In a bowl, mix all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture forms fine crumbs. Stir in whole-wheat flour and oats.
  2. 2. Add yogurt; stir gently. If mixture is too dry to hold together, stir in milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, just until dough holds together; it should not be sticky.
  3. 3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and knead gently 5 times to make a ball. Set on a lightly greased baking sheet. Pat into a 7-inch circle. With a floured knife, cut a large X on top of loaf.
  4. 4. Bake in a 375° oven until well browned, about 40 minutes. Cool on a rack. Serve warm or cool.
