Olive You


Olive bread is always a crowd pleaser. The salty tang of the olives, a velvet crumb, and an attractive aroma make this bread much more than just a one night stand. It’s love at first bite. The Baker’s Percentage for this bread is as follows:

Total Flour                                1,000 g                                100%

White Flour                                 900 g                                  90%

Whole-wheat Flour                    100 g                                  10%

Pitted Olives                                250 g                                 25%

Herbs de Provence                     1 tsp

Zest of One Lemon

Levain                                          200 g                                  20%

Water                                           700 g                                  70%

Salt                                                20 g                                    2%

The night before mixing the dough, rinse the olives in water and set them out on a towel to dry. This will get rid of any excessive salt. At this point, you can chop them up a little or just leave whole. Either way, add the olives in at the Mix and continue on through the Bake.

Perfect on its own, but great with a dip. Get in the mood and rip off a hunk of burnin’ love!!
