      I took Karen's advice and did the first 6 steps in my ABM, and then picked up on Step 7. I made some changes, using sun-dried tomato oil instead of the olive oil, and using 1/4 cup kalamata olives & 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes instead of the 1/2 cup olives. The result was ABSOLUTE DELICIOUSNESS! And the bread looked amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      I didnt change anything the first time I made this, now I make it all the time. I do add more olives because we love them. Thank you for sharing it with us.

      I don't want to assign any stars to my review because I used my bread machine to make the bread so it isn't fair to rate the recipe since I did not follow the instructions.The bread tastes very, very good. If anyone else would like to use their bread machine for this recipe then I recommend cutting the water down to 1 cup and see if that is enough liquid. Be sure to drain the olives very, very well. I used kalamata olives. The baking time seemed off. The first 15 minutes at 450 degrees browned the loaf so much I thought it was done. I ended up continuing to bake it, as directed, but at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes more. I liked the flavor so much that I will try this again and see if I can get it to work better using the bread machine.
