  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • cup mixed fresh herbs (marjoram, thyme, sage), washed and dried, finely chopped
  • cup olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line the bottom and sides of an approximately 11 x 3-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. (The parchment should go all the way up to the top edges of the pan.)

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the middle and set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, gently whisk buttermilk, yogurt, egg, garlic, herbs and olive oil. Pour this in the well in the dry ingredients and mix only until combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the greased pan, and bake in the preheated 350°F oven until the bread becomes solid -- it should no longer jiggle when you move the pan, the top is golden brown and slightly cracked, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  5. Let the bread rest in the pan for at least 20 minutes or so. Then lift it out gently with the parchment paper. Wait about an hour before attempting to slice the bread. It should be cooled almost completely.
