Garlic Olive Bread

I love making bread. All kinds of breads. Most of the bread I make usually have to be “kneaded” which can get pretty messy if you are not careful. It will also give you quite a workout. This Skillet Garlic Olive Bread has none of that.

This delicious Garlic Olive Bread requires no kneading but does need time to proof like most bread recipes. A little over 3 hours from start to finish and you have a delicious skillet bread.

Personally I always use my Stand Mixer when making bread but if you don’t have one you can always use a wooden spoon to mix the dough. You probably won’t need to go to the gym after that workout!

Make sure you don’t skip the step of scoring the bread. Among other things, scoring ensures that you won’t get large pockets of air in the bread. All you need is a very sharp knife or bread scoring lame. The scores should be about 1/4 inch deep.

    I don’t have a stand mixer, will it work old fashion way?

    1. Absolutely! I like to use a stand mixer because it requires less manual labor.

  2. Brandi says:

    This bread is so soft and fluffy and the olives give it a little bit of saltiness to it.

    1. And so easy to make as well! Thanks!
