directions

  • Place water, yeast, and molasses in a mixing bowl; stir to mix.
  • Let stand for a few minutes until mixture is creamy and foamy.
  • Add olive oil and salt; mix.
  • Add flour, about a cup at a time, until dough is too stiff to stir.
  • Add olives and fresh herbs.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board.
  • Knead, adding flour as needed to keep from being sticky, until smooth and elastic.
  • Place in well oiled bowl, and turn to coat the dough surface with oil.
  • Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about an hour or so.
  • Punch the dough down, split into two pieces, and form into two round loaves.
  • Place on greased baking sheet.
  • Spray with cold water and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  • Let loaves rise for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 400°F (205°C) for about 45 minutes, or until they are brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

    I tried this bread based on the reviews and have to say, I didn't enjoy it. I thought the rosemary took away from the flavour of the olives and there was nowhere near enough olive oil in it - previous olive breads I have made have contained a lot more olive oil to give a nice moist bread and enhance the flavour of the olives - I found this quite bland in comparison.

    This is a nice, dense and moist bread. I halved the recipe and kneaded it in the bread machine using 1/3 whole wheat flour. I used dried rosemary- ground it in a spice grinder and used about 1/2 tsp. and it was PLENTY. I made a round, let it rise, and then cooked it in a dutch oven (cloche style) and it was a superb, crusty offering for fondue. I am looking forward to making sandwiches with the rest! Next time I will continue reducing the amount of rosemary, and add more olives. Texture and taste are bakery quality.
