Lemon Berry Greek Yogurt Bread

Lemon Berry Bread

Lemon Berry Greek Yogurt Bread with Crumble Topping 

Back in early January, my husband and I went on a fabulous mini getaway for our 10th anniversary to Selah Ranch.  We had a great time fishing, playing frisbee golf, driving around in the golf cart, playing dominoes and enjoying the quiet.


Fishing with the hubs. Even in January the place was gorgeous. Although, a wee bit chilly! Check out more pictures on our Instagram.

Another thing I really enjoyed was breakfast! I loved the quiche and fruit, but I really loved the breads.  One morning, we had a berry quick bread that was so yummy!!  I ate the entire loaf by myself!!  Don’t worry it was just a mini loaf but still I might have been able to eat a whole big loaf too. 

So I’ve been wanting to make my own berry quick bread since then.  I took a basic Greek Yogurt blueberry bread recipe that I’ve used before and changed it up a bit by adding lemon and this amazing crumble top.  And so was born this amazing Lemon Berry Greek Yogurt Bread with Crumble Topping.

I love the flavors of lemon and berry together and they work well in this bread.  Also, who doesn’t love a sweet crumble topping on their bread.  If you are looking, to make this bread healthier, you can easily leave the crumble off.  But personally, I think it’s pretty essential to the bread.  

Yield: 12 slices

We really love quick bread at our house, well except for my husband, he only likes banana nut bread.  But the kids and I love it.  And I love that I don’t have to deal with yeast!!   My only problem with quick bread is how quickly it gets devoured!!
