Olive - Cheese Quick Bread

Recipe by Debber
READY IN: 45mins
SERVES: 8-10
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Grease a loaf pan; set aside. Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and the cheese; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg; stir in milk and oil, mixing well.
  • Add onion to the egg-milk, mix; then stir into flour mixture--do not over-mix, just get things moist.
  • Spoon half of batter into prepared pan. Arrange 28 olives on their sides, 4 rows of 7 olives each.
  • Spoon remaining batter over the olives, smoothing the top with the back of the spoon.
  • Place remaining 7 olives evenly spaced down the center of the top of the loaf.
  • Brush with olive oil (or spray).
  • Bake 35-45 minutes until wooden pick comes out clean.
  • Let stand 10 minutes---this is really important or the loaf will sort of fall apart when you cut it :-(.
  • VARIATIONS: Use a different type of cheese for a whole different flavor. How about a different kind of olive? Mmmmm -- .
