    Delicious bread but directions somewhat misleading. I used yogurt and had to use a pastry cutter to incorporate the ingredients which were like a heavy cookie dough. Also, "batter" needed to be pressed into pan. If you use yogurt, "whisking" and "pouring" probably will not be possible. - 11/28/12

    I think this is a Mark Bittman recipe. Anyway, I made it last night to go with some veggie lasagna and it was delicious! This morning I put an egg & veggie sausage on it and the sweet added a great contrast to the savory! loved it! - 3/7/11
