Sundried tomato and olive bread

Sun dried tomato and olive bread

This bread is lovely and light and so full of flavour. I usually love this bread toasted with a spread of butter. It is a perfect addition to a bread basket at the start of a dinner party. It does take a while to prepare so don’t start it if you are hungry but it is perfect to make at the weekends.

  • 30ml Olive oil
  • 10g Yeast
  • 120ml Water

  1. Mix all the ingredients except the olives and sun dried tomatoes.
