Homemade bread is one of the best things on the planet. And even though it seems intimidating, if you are going to be home for a couple of hours, you can definitely make this recipe. This Olive Bread was out of the oven in 2 hours…that’s right, from mixing it up and including 2 rises, the whole process took about 2 hours; and you get 2 loaves! That’s why I call this Olive Bread 2-2-2: 2 Rises, 2 Loaves, 2 Hours.
And there is nothing in the world like bread fresh from the oven with butter melting into the nooks and crannies. Can you just taste it? Well, if you have 2 hours, here you go! Make it and taste it!
One of the best parts of this recipe is that if you don’t want Olive Bread, or you want one loaf with olives and one without, this recipe also makes a wonderful French Bread. Just leave the olives and thyme out of the recipe.
