Kalamata Olive Bread With Oregano

READY IN: 1hr 8mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

My loaf pan is 9X5 and the recipe asks for 8x4, so instead I baked this in two mini-loaf pans. This is very moist and flavorful bread! From Cooking Light - January 2009.

This bread was really easy and turned out great. Very moist and flavourful. I followed the recipe except I subed one cup of the flour for whole wheat. Next time I would add extra olives and less onions.
