Looking at olive loaf recipes? If you’re not the best at baking, this recipe will be a great confidence booster for you. This was the recipe taught to me when I made my first loaf. I still use it to this day. Once you make this olive loaf, you’ll start baking all sorts because it’s such a fun and addictive process! The best part of this recipe is that you can try so many different variations of it and make it your own.        

I love the savoury Mediterranean flavour. I love using a nice strong cheese and with the flavours the sun dried tomatoes, capsicum and the salty kalamata olives, give a beautiful depth of flavour to this rustic recipe!. You will love sharing this with everyone time and time again!

As I said before, this is so simple and easy to make and can be served with any meal for all occasions.I love it when it’s nice and warm, spread with real butter on it. YUM!

    Hello Jas how are you son.
    If you want to add a taste that will tease your little bud’s replace the diced capsicum with oven roasted capsicums. You can get them from woolies. I think one would be enough but you can add more.

      Of course! I remember you used them the day you taught me that recipe. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  2. Just brilliant. Well done.
