      I got around to maki8ng this today. It was easy to prepare andI didnt have a mess to clean up after, just 1 bowl. I have the same thing happen it didnt brown on the top .Maybe I didnt put enough oil on the top. All that being said It was very good and we polished the loaf at suppertime but kept 1 slice to take for lunch tomorrow. I will make it again for sure .Hubby was very impressed with mine but he didnt see what it should have looked like. brenda

      I was very happy this recipe turned out as well as it did. Next time I will try fresh oregano from the garden (once it starts growing again.) Used a combination of kalamata olives and some Spanish olives stuffed with garlic and pimientos. A few posters mentioned the bread was "crumbly" but that is the nature of quick breads. Also, the type of flour used may require a little bit more liquid. I shaped the bread by lightly kneading on a floured surface, brushed with olive oil and added only a 1/2 cup of walnuts. I personally wouldn't omit the walnuts, they added a nice crunch to the bread. I will try baking the bread next time in a preheated cast iron skillet. Thanks for posting.

      I made this for KelBel's cookathon and so glad I found it. Such a delicious earthy bread, the seasonings go so well with the olives and walnuts. The perfect partner to pasta night. Thank you!
