Coffee Swirl Yogurt Bread

My mum’s cousin Kim is always in the kitchen trying out new recipes. While I was at my parents for Christmas she dropped off some loaves of coffee swirl yogurt bread that she had just made. Not only was the bread gorgeous, but it also tasted so good I just had to share the recipe. 

Coffee Swirl Yogurt Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour
dash of salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup butter; softened
1 ¼ cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
¼ cup international instant coffee mix (any flavor)
1. Heat oven to 350.
2. Grease and flour the bottom only of a loaf pan (Kim made mini loaves).
3. Mix flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
4. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until fluffy.
5. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
6. Beat in flour mixture alternately with yogurt, beating until smooth after each addition.
7. Remove 1 cup of the batter, stir in dry coffee (Kim made a regular and a vanilla coffee bread).
8. Pour half of the plain batter into the pan.
9. Drop coffee batter by spoonfuls onto batter in pan.
10. Add remaining plain batter.
11. Swirl batters deeply with handle of a spoon for marbled design.
12. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (about an hour).
13. Cool 10 minutes.
14. Loosen sides of loaf from pan and set on a wire rack.
15. Cool completely before slicing.


  1. This looks amazing! I definitely have to try this recipe out. :)

    Happy New Year!!


  2. Interesting combo, and pretty easy to make too. I wonder if I can substitute all purpose flour with whole wheat?
