Walnut and Olive Bread evokes this rustic evocative image of the Mediterranean countryside. Bread is much easier to make than you think it is. It is a case of mixing in the ingredients and allowing them to process. For the results and the consistency I prefer I leave this to prove overnight ready for the following day.
  • 16g fresh yeast
  • 340ml filtered water
  • 1tsp raw unrefined sugar
  • pint of salt
  • 620g “00” doppio flour
  • 80g semolina flour
  • 7tbs olive oil
  • 75g walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 75g olives, destoned and sliced in two
  1. Place the yeast, lukewarm water, sugar and salt into a jug and mix.
  2. Add the yeast to the flour in a food mixer. Combine well.
  3. Add the oil. Continuing whizzing the dough.
  4. Gently fold in the walnut and olives.
  5. Place the dough onto a large baking tray. Leave to prove in a warm space.
  6. Every couple of hours or so, knead the risen dough. Leave the dough over night to prove. Cover with a dry dishcloth if needed.
  7. The following day, you do not need to knead. When ready pre-heat the oven. Wait until the oven is warm. Cover with aluminium foil and bake the bread for about 25 minutes.
