250g plain flour

50g cold butter (from the fridge)
2 whole eggs
45g low fat yoghurt (you can mix half plain yoghurt and buttermilk)

  3. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter
  4. Mix it to a crumble

  6. Mix it well until a smooth dough forms and transfer on to a hard surface
  7. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes
