Olive Bread

I used the recipe for Olive Fougasse, but baked in in the machine as a normal loaf.

Ingredients

  • 250g Water
  • 15 ml Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Quick Bake Yeast

  1. Put all the ingredients except the olives into the machine, and hit Go!
  2. When it beeps, add the olives.

The Full Fougasse

  1. Use the dough setting.
  2. Knock back the dough, and gently flatten it.
  3. Sprinkle over the olives, and fold over the dough two or three times to incorporate them.
  4. Flatten, and roll into an oblong about 30cm long.
  5. With a sharp knife, make four or five diagonal parallel cuts, leaving the edges intact.
  6. Gently stretch the dough, so that it resembles a ladder.
  7. Lightly oil a baking sheet, and place the dough on it. Cover with clear film, and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  8. Pre heat the oven to 220°C.
  9. Brush the top with olive oil.
  10. Bake for 20-25 minutes
