Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf
This loaf has real flavour and was easy enough to make. However, we found the texture to be quite dry. This may be down to differences between yoghurt in America and Britain (our yoghurt tends to be thicker and richer here in the UK), or something about the recipe itself. If I made again, I'd be tempted to try the recommended alteration of increasing the yoghurt and decreasing the butter, just to see if that helps. Overall, though, lovely flavour, nice crisp texture on the outside, and I love poppy seeds, so definitely not too many for me!

This was my first time making croissants from scratch. The recipe was pretty easy to follow and the first six we made turned out great. After reworking the dough a few times, though, the last 6 were more like bread rolls. The dough seemed to need a lot more flour than the stated amount as it ended up being quite wet when made up as spelled out here. I probably used at least another 1/2c, maybe as much as 1c extra flour! To be honest, I think I'll try another recipe next time, just to see if there's something better out there. It was good, but not amazing!
