    I have never made anything with yeast, and while partly that’s to do with the risk + time factors, it’s also because I’m just not that into bread and doughy foods. However, this is one of the first times I’ve actually wanted to make a yeasted creation – I love olive bread and, back home, our rosemary bush is constantly trying to take over our house…

    Might I put in a request for you to come up with some sort of peanut-butter bread? You’re so good at the peanut butter sweets 😀

    Hannah—Actually, I have a pretty rockin peanut butter banana bread (click here) that I make on a fairly regular basis. As for a just-plain-PB bread, I don’t yet have one in my arsenal…but I will add that to my to-make list!
    PS—Let me know if you give this one a try when you get back home! You won’t be sorry :]

    That looks great! Good job! I’ve always been a bit “afraid” of making bread too…I think I could do this though. I don’t have a big mixer like that though :/ Can’t wait to see what other breads you attempt!

    Kati—You can knead it by hand, it would just take a little more time and effort. You’d get a great forearm workout, though! 😛

    Teehee, I already have that one bookmarked. I will absolutely make it, gobble it up, and report back once I’m home!

    the secret to get the bread to look like those artisan loaves is to dust the top with flour to make it white, then take your sharpest knife and make slits in the top, about 1/2 cm deep. As the bread rises and bakes, it will look like the look you are going for.

    Can I asked what kind of olives you used?

    New Vegan & new to your blog & I am loving all the recipes I see!!! I have been searching for a bread to make in my bread machine & this looks like a good one!
    Do you know if this is a 1lb 1.5 lb or 2lb bread & can the olives be omitted? Also, can I use whole wheat pastry flour with whole wheat four? Just asking because this is what I have on hand. I may just end up making your beer bread, I’ve made beer bread before I was vegan & it was the easiest thing ever & delicious!

    So very glad you posted this recipe! We are on a weekend getaway with friends an I’d promised to make this bread- and forgot my cookbook at home! You saved me! Thank you!
