Homemade olive bread 😍

I finally found the time to make my very own olive bread, and it turned out better then I had hoped for.. the one loaf got eating almost the moment it come out the oven..had to give it a good few blows first.

There is absolutely no need for me to buy bread for myself again. I saved one loaf for tomorrow that am sure I will have with some salad and dip onto the dressing.

It was made with 500g of wholemeal flour, yeast chopped onion, dried mint, olives, olive oil, water.

The recipe had added salt, but half of the olives I used were very salty, so I didn't add any and it was perfectly balanced with the salty olives.

One of the best things I cooked ever 😊

You deserve to feel inspired so enjoy your efforts as that’s what it’s all about 😊

They look soooo good Happyman, well done. 😊

Thanks springcross, am just wondering if the loaf thats left will survive until tomorrow for breakfast. 😁

I somehow think not, well at least it wouldn't here that's for sure! πŸ˜‚

πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ You certainly do what you put your mind to, I'm impressed! Looks delicious. I'd have been pulling bits off before it even made it out of the oven! I'm amazed there's any left!

Oh don't, my stomach's positively aching now! 😁I'm famous for wake, sleep, or any and every time eating!

I don't have butter these days, am vegan , it is something I will always remember very fondly, along with eggs, but that wouldn't stop me anyway, an alternative would suffice.

My wife told me to put it back 3 times.. ((( its still not cook yet))) she said. 😁

I was tempted to do that, but it was difficult with those big oven gloves on. 😁

It looks really good and I'm sure it was delicious. The aroma of freshly baked bread wafting in your home must have been heavenly.

I bet your bread used as a tomato basil bruschetta with feta cheese would be a delight to eat.

Hi Happyman4, your olive bread looks deliciously. I am glad everyone enjoyed and appreciated your effort. Thank you for sharing with us! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

I remember going to a bread convention when dad worked at the bakery in Farnworth in the 70s & I was allowed to taste any of the breads that were made -because I had a special entry because of my dad working there.One of the breads i tasted was olive bread which was nice

Yours looks lovely & Im sure it tastes lovely too
