How to Make Cheesy Olive Herb Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350* Generously butter a large loaf tin and either line it with butter parchment paper or dust with flour. Set tin aside.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder, soda, salt, pepper and mustard powder into a large bowl. Whisk with a whisk to incorporate the dry ingredients. Add both cheeses, olives, sun dried tomatoes,onion,garlic, parsley and thyme and stir them thoroughly together.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the oil and buttermilk until they are well combined.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir together to form a thick, sticky batter. Scrape the batter into the prepared tin and spread it out evenly.
  5. Brush the top of the batter with the egg wash and then sprinkle some thyme leaves and sea salt onto the loaf.
  6. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until a fine skewer inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. If the top starts to burn, place a piece of foil to cover the top of the loaf and continue baking. Leave in tin for 5 minutes before turning ot onto a wire rack.
    This loaf is best served on the same day. Wrap left overs tightly and store in fridge. Gently reheat in oven if serving left overs.
  7. Made me think that this would pair good with Hummus, and make these into drop dinner rolls, Going to have to give that a try and see if they even come out as good as the bread itself! Hope you give this bread a try at your dinner table!!! Enjoy!
