Vanilla Yogurt Bread with Orange Glaze

Sometimes simple is best.

A simple yogurt based bread with vanilla beans and an orange glaze.

With a simple recipe comes a simple post.

If you’re like me, you can’t wait for fall weather, food, drinks, long pants and flannels. (And of course…football!)

Until then, I hope you are doing well and enjoying these fleeting days of summer!


Recipe: Vanilla Yogurt Bread with Orange Glaze


1 2/3 Cups All Purpose Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Egg

1 Egg Yolk

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Vanilla Bean, Seeds only, discard pod.

1 1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

7 Ounces Greek Yogurt

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

4 Tablespoons Orange Juice, Divided

For the Glaze:

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

5 Tablespoons Orange Juice


Spray two small 6×3.2×3.4 inch loaf pans, or oil and flour and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine eggs and sugar, beating until light yellow, about 3 minutes.

Add vanilla extract, bean seeds and oil, beating for another minute.

In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking soda, powder and salt together.

Add half dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix. Follow with half the greek yogurt and 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Once combined, finish off with rest of dry flour mixture, stirring until incorporated.

Pour into loaf pans and bake for about 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

While baking, combine powdered sugar and orange juice.

When bread finishes baking, remove from oven and poke holes with a toothpick or chopstick all over the bread. Remove from pans and place on a cooling rack.

While bread is still warm, pour or spread glaze over top and let cool/harden.

Slice and serve!

I found this recipe on a blog randomly. It’s a cute website and you can check it out here.
