What’s not to love about breads? They are soft, yummy and versatile and go well with most of the things. You can have it as a sandwich, with pasta, with soups, use it in a dessert and even have it as is. And it is even better if this bread is homemade! Imagine biting into the warm feathery delicious bread that you have just taken out of your oven; you can hear the crunchiness of the crust as you bite into it. It truly is rewarding knowing the outcomes of your labour could be so amazing.

Last year as the pandemic hit we had to stay back home every single day and we found out more innovative ways of spending time. We started doing things we loved, and baking was obviously one of them. Baking is exciting; it is always fun to experiment with different textures and tastes and see what the end results look like. And it goes without saying the more you do it, the better you get at it. So it doesn’t matter if you are an old timer or are going to be baking your first ever bread, all that matters is that you have to have fun. One of the simplest breads to bake is the olive bread and if you want to learn baking just one thing in your life, let it be this! Extremely easy, requires minimum ingredients and efforts and is loved by all, presenting in front of you, the Olive bread.
Olives and olive oil have become a big part of our diet
How to make Oilve bread | Oilve bread recipe
Olive bread requires just 4 major ingredients, olives being the first obviously. You don’t have to be a fancy baker or anything, just the normal ingredients, a little effort and your olive bread is ready. You can use green or black pitted olives, whichever you prefer or even both if you like it that way. Chop the olives and keep them aside, in a bowl mix all the dry ingredients, in another smaller bowl add warm water and yeast and let that activate for 10 mins. Mix the dry and wet ingredients, add the chopped olives and knead your dough with light hands. Drizzle a good amount of olive oil on top and let it rest for 20- 60 mins and pop it in the oven! Once baked, take it out, let it cool and its ready for the feast! Apply butter and toast it, or dip in olive oil or make flavourful sandwiches, the choice is yours!
