These mini loaves are perfect autumn or Easter fare, ideal for breakfast or afternoon tea – or even dunking in soup.
⅓ cup basil pesto
1 ⅔ cups Greek natural yoghurt
⅔ cup olive oil
1 cup grated parmesan
2 ⅓ cups self-raising flour
1 ½ cups grated kumara
100 grams roughly chopped prosciutto or ham
½ cup chopped, semi-dried tomatoes
⅔ cup walnut pieces
Preheat oven to 180˚C and grease 14 loaf mini loaf tray or 12 hole (⅓ cup size) large muffin tin. Put pesto, yoghurt, olive oil and eggs in a big bowl.
Season well with salt and pepper and whisk to combine.
Add cheese, flour, kumara, prosciutto, tomatoes and walnuts and stir together – it will seem quite stiff at this point.
Divide between prepared tins and bake for 20–25 minutes until golden and cooked through. Makes 14 mini loaves
