Home Sweet Home Bakealong 27: Olive Loaf

May 22, 2015


Olive Loaf soda bread

Short and sweet this week as it’s been a busy fortnight with trips Centre Parcs with small people and fun-filled evenings. You’ll get another HSH update tomorrow, equally curt. Sorry. Oh, also the camera battery had dies when I came to hurriedly take photos before rushing out of the door to a wedding. So you’ve got phone photos. It’s a top class service this fortnight! On the up-side, I don’t feel too guilty as Beckie is also running a reduced service at the moment, though for a better reason.

Three things to note about this recipe.

1. Don’t try to put the whole mixture in one tin. Hummingbird ones are bigger than yours.
2. Don’t make this unless you are going to eat it straight away. It goes dry really quickly.
3. Don’t give it to Mr B and especially not at a church picnic. He will spit it out in front of everyone because it’s dry and he doesn’t like olives or rosemary very much.

    I love Olive bread, but I’ve never tried to make it myself, It’s interesting what you say about this being quite dry and eating it within a day of making. I’ll have to give it a try.
