The recipe asks for black olives but use any kind that you like, it will work fine! Baking time is however long it takes your machine.
- 1 cup milk (70* to 80* degrees)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1⁄2-1 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1⁄4 cup sliced ripe olives
- In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer.
- Select basic bread setting.
- Choose crust color and loaf size if available.
- Bake according to bread machine directions ( check dough after 5 minutes of mixing: add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
- Just before the final kneading (your machine may audibly signal this), add the olives.
- Yield: 1 loaf (1-1/2 pounds), 16 slices.
Made for the Goddesses of ZWT-9, DH & I both loved this bread. Except for the addition of garlic powder equal to 2 cloves of garlic, it was made as written. The texture was lovely & the feta flavor very subtle. It was slathered w/butter while still warm from my ABM & was perfect to accompany Marinated Olives, #361372 by PaulaG plus a lightly-creamed soup that cleaned the fridge of all the leftovers -- A yummy meal! Thx for sharing your delicious recipe w/us. :-)
This is a delicious bread, which I opted to start in my bread machine and finish in the oven so I could shape it. I used kalamata olives for a more Greek taste and they were perfect. Made for ZWT #9.
Based on a report from class of third graders, I give this recipe a 4. My son had a Greek project to do for school and we chose cooking. I liked the ease of using the bread machine. I personally wish my olives hadn't turned out so tiny, but the machine did that. My son loves feta and expected to be able to taste it in the bread. so he was alittle dissappointed even though he said his food entry was chosen #1 over everyone elses. Will probably make again and shape the loaf myself to keep the olives in form. Thank You Annacia!!!
