1 pkg. quick rising active yeast
2-3 tsp. dried dillweed
1 (8 oz.) carton plain yogurt

In a medium saucepan, heat yogurt, sugar, water, margarine (or butter) and 1/2 teaspoon salt just until warm (125-130 degrees), stirring constantly. Add to flour mixture along with egg. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed 1/2 minute, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed 3 minutes. Stir in remaining flour (batter will be sticky).
