Bread :) I haven’t talked about it in a while… I found this recipe on 24Kitchen. One evening I wasn’t feeling well and my roommate was working, and I was just lying on the couch with a sore stomach. And I was watching cooking :-/
Anyway, Lorraine Pascale was cooking some realy tasty stuff and my stomach hurt all the more. I wrote this recipe down cause I really really liked it. I can not resist a good bread – and she also used the magical statement – ready in 45 minutes – which makes me want to immediately get to the stove. It did not take long, I baked it the day after the show ;)
The bread is really good. I made it with white flour and white combined with whole wheat, and it was equally delicious. It’s heavy and concrete because there is no yeast, it’s very aromatic, with a crispy crust. Lorraine says that it can work in various combinations with various add-ons, and I now come to mind dried tomatoes would certainly be a good idea … So, the recipe…
- 450 g flour (you can also mix two types)
- 10 g baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 225 ml of water
- 1 sprig rosemary, finely chopped (can also be dried)
- About 10 olives, black or green, coarsely chopped
- Preheat the oven to 200 ° C and leave a tin in to get hot.
- In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except olives. Knead them till they come together, and then continue to knead on a floured surface. When you get a consistent mixture, flatten it to about 3 cm thick, sprinkle with olives and press them in the dough. Now fold the ends of the dough over the olives and knead again so the olives get distributed through the dough. When you are satisfied with the dough, form a cylinder (or a ball), flatten to about 4 cm thick and divide into eight parts using a wooden spoon handle (push it through the dough almost to the bottom). The round version (devide it like a pizza) is beautiful, but I found this one more prastical for eating.
- Remove the tin from the oven, place the dough on it and bake for 30 minutes. Cool down and enjoy the tasty and quick bread :)
