Quick Olive Bread


Ok, everyone. I don’t like this bread. I love it. Easy? Yes. Delicious? Yes. I found this on http://epicurious.com and all I can say is if you are keen on olives or just want to eat something great, try this please.

1 1/2 cups firmly packed drained Kalamata or other brine-cured black olives [I used pitted black olives]
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoonsΒ  baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
2 large eggs
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated onion
2/3 cups milk


Crush the olives lightly with the flat side of a large knife on a cutting board and discard the pits. Drain the olives on paper towels and chop them. In a large bowl stir together the flour, the baking powder, the sugar, the salt, and the mint, add the olives, and toss the mixture well. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, the oil, the onion, and the milk and add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until the batter is just combined. Transfer the batter to a greased loaf pan, 8 by 4 by 2 1/2 inches, and bake the bread in the middle of a preheated 350Β°F. oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. [Mine took about 55 minutes] Turn the bread out onto a rack and let it cool.


Enjoy! Xxxx Natascha
