I'm learning, but it seems slowly sometimes.

Can you tell me what dough yogurt is, and how to make it?

I have extra home-made yogurt and am interested to know if I can make yogurt dough.

Thanks!

Yogurt dough is a dough made with at least a cup of yogurt and and one of butter giving it a yummy richness.

In some cases it is a soaked dough as well.  Soaking, or allowing the mixture to sit over night, means the good cultures in the yogurt can begin to predigest the gluten and phytates in the four.  Rendering a much healthier final product.

Here is one good recipe  http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/2008/02/rich-whole-grain-crackers-2.html

Enjoy

Mmmmm, that sounds yummy!

Just realized I haven't had any yogurt leather in ages... one of my snacking favorites.

If you eat steel-cut oats, might I recommend adding a dollop of yogurt to them as they soak the night before, for the same reasons Jami mentions.

The bacteria in a good sourdough culture often resemble those in a good yogurt culture, especially if the sourdough is kept fairly warm and fed frequently. Adding yogurt to a typical sourdough recipe, in place of water, is likely to improve it.

Thanks much.

I have some 'resting' now, to make a quiche tomorrow.

Lots of oil (1 c butter) for 3 1/2 c flour.  But it's homemade butter and yogurt,
together with fresh ground flour, so I know it will be good.
