Recipe: Kale bread - the first bread I ever baked.

So, my obsession with kale doesn't seem anywhere near the end. Last week, I come across this kale bread recipe on Pinterest and decided to try. This was the first bread I ever baked, and surprisingly  it turned out really good. And trust me, if I was able to bake, anyone can bake it.

The only change I made to the recipe was that I used whole wheat flour instead of spelt flour. I am really lazy and didn't want to run to the groceries just for that. I wasn't sure it was going to work, but it did. :)

Kale and Fetta Bread (Recipe from Souvlaki For The Soul)

2 1/2 cups of white spelt flour
2 tsp of baking powder
a pinch of sea salt
a pinch of pepper
2 of cups shredded kale
1/2 cup of freshly chopped parsley
1/4 cup of freshly chopped mint
1/4 cup of freshly chopped dill
150g of crumbled fetta cheese
1 cup of Greek yoghurt
1/2 of cup olive oil
2 eggs
grated Pecorino cheese

Preheat your oven to 355ºF and grease or line with baking paper a cake tin measuring 8.5" x 5". In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, kale, herbs and fetta cheese. Set aside. In a large jug whisk the yoghurt, olive and eggs and add to the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Pour the batter in your baking tin, top with some grated Pecorino cheese and bake for approximately 45 mins or until the top has browned and the insides are cooked. Insert a skewer to check whether the bread has cooked. Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before inverting onto a cake rack. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

And that's it! In the comments section the blogger mentions you can substitute kale for spinach or swiss chard. So, if you are not a kale fan, you can still make this bread.


  1. Ana que tentação, to com feta na geladeira e ontem na caixa dos orgânicos chegou Kale. Eu nunca tinha feito e tava precisando de receitas de como usar :) Usei metade ontem pra fazer um quiche, mas pqp daqui há pouco não consigo mais comer quiche, quando não sei o que fazer jogo a coisa no quiche! (aliás foi o que aconteceu com aquele squash no final :S
