Delicious and one I will make again! I thought the dough seemed too wet when I kneaded in the olives and garlic, but the bread is big, moist and excellent, so I wouldn't change the amount of flour. PS I DID leave in an olive pit by accident and my husband nearly broke a tooth! Be careful.
I made this bread yesterday. Followed the recipe to a T. I measured the flour with my scale weighing 1 pound = 4 c of flour. This is one of the easiest recipes for bread that I've ever used. Wonderful results. Will make again. Thanks for posting this recipe.
I was rather skeptical while making this bread. It was extremely easy but when I began kneading the dough the entire filling burst through and all over my counter. I just managed the get the dough into a ball pressed some of the filling onto the surface of the dough and decided to try baking it anyways. It was wonderful! My husband myself and our two young children polished off most of the loaf at dinner and finished the rest for breakfast the next morning. Next time I make it (which will be soon) I'll just knead it altogether and not worry about keeping the filling in the middle. Do try this delicious bread. We ate it with souvlaki and a Greek salad.
Very tasty! I used a more traditional method for rising instead of heating anything and I made the whole recipe by hand. I did use Black and Green Olives because I didn't have Kalamata...although I do love Kalamta!! I let it rise for a full hour on the second rise after shaping. The end result was soft and moist...packed with flavor! I'll try the addition of some olive brine in place of some water next time and maybe a little rosemary. I also only used 1 tsp of salt in the dough because I was using such salty olives! Wonderful recipe-thanks.
Found this recipe while looking for a roasted garlic bread recipe. It was really good! The method described really sped up the proofing process. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer instead of a food processor. Here's the ingredient changes I used: only 2 cloves of garlic as what I had was getting a little dry and thus more pungent and a Tbl of dried rosemary crushed.
This makes a very satisfying, dense yet tender loaf. I followed the recipe exactly, and it's an easy bread to make in an afternoon. I like the use of the Kalamata olives, but the garlic tasted a little "raw". Next time I will try sauteing the garlic in a little of the olive oil before putting it in the bread.
this bread is sooo sooo good!! the whole house smells wonderful after i baked this!! i also roasted the garlic before i put it in the bread and io sprikled some oregeno on top. i just mixed it all in bowl. and then baked it in the bowl so it would be perfectly round. it turned out great!
Very easy and very good. I just mixed it with a spoon and then my hands and kneaded it a bit in the bowl. I made it with whole wheat flour and it still came out very moist. I got half way through the recipe before I realized I was out of Kalamata olives. Oops! I used green olives instead and it was tasty! It did end up a little too salty with the green olives though so if I do that again I'll cut some of the salt in the bread. Great recipe and I'll be using it again!
This bread was so easy to make! I made it by hand because I love the process. It turned out great and was quite tasty along with our lentil soup. I added fresh rosemary to the filling and kneaded the ingredients through the bread. The filling poked out in places but looked pretty and rustic. The texture of the bread was like country white...was hoping it would be more like an Italian loaf...not sure how to achieve that texture since I'm not very experienced in bread baking. This would be a great recipe baked as foccacia too!
Given the glowing reviews I was disappointed. This is a flat-tasting substanceless bread essentially a loaf of wonder bread with diced garlic and olive in it. I was able to improve it a bit by drizzling olive oil on top and coating the loaf with fresh rosemary but I still won't make it again. The bread with cloves of garlic that my grocery (Albertson's) deli makes is far heartier and tastier.
