Heat yogurt in a microwave-safe bowl in a microwave or on the stovetop until lukewarm.
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in yogurt, 2 cups flour, sugar, oil, and salt. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.
Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Place in a greased bowl and let rise in until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Shape dough into 8 loaves; brush each lightly with cold water. Cut 3 diagonal slashes across the top of each loaf with a sharp knife. Let rise until doubled in size, about 25 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Brush loaves with cold water.
Bake in the preheated oven until they sound hollow when tapped, 30 to 35 minutes, brushing with water twice during baking time.

The quality of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as white bread.
To made this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
