“This is slightly heavier than American corn bread, with the distinct flavor of olive oil. It's very nice as an accompaniment to soups and bean dishes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Oil an 8" x 4" loaf bread pan or an 8" x 8" round cake pan.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cornmeal.
  4. Beat together the yogurt, eggs, and olive oil.
  5. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix well but don't overwork.
  6. Pour into the oiled pan and bake for 30 minutes, until the top is golden and the bread firm.
  7. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool another 15 minutes or more before slicing (for a loaf) or cutting into squares or wedges if baked into a cake pan.
  8. Storing: Cover the pan with foil, or keep leftover pieces in plastic bags.
