What kind of Greek yogurt should I use?
I prefer plain Greek yogurt, but you can use a fruit flavored yogurt if you like. From blueberry to coconut yogurt. You can try all the flavors you like.
Also: remember to take your yogurt out of the fridge a while before you want to make the dough. You want all the ingredients to be at room temperature. Don’t forget your milk as well!
Greek yogurt substitutions
The first time I made this recipe, I did not use Greek yogurt. I used quark. It’s an ingredient you see a lot in the Netherlands and many other countries in Europe. If you manage to find quark in your local grocery store: try it sometime, it’s delicious!
I like to try different things, so I once made this bread buns with Greek yogurt instead of quark and that worked perfectly fine as well. I really like the end result.
You could also try this recipe with regular yogurt, but I would advise using a little less of it. This is because plain yogurt has a different structure, but also a different amount of fat and moisture. If you use regular yoghurt and you think the dough is too wet: add a little extra flour to it.
