Health Highlights

Ingredients


2 packet (individual) Instant dry yeast, Fleischmann's
2 1/4 cup Water (lukewarm)
2 tbsp Honey
7 cup Spelt flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Garlic powder
2 tsp Rosemary, dried
3 tsp Oregano, ground
1/2 cup Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
2/3 cup Kalamata olives (finely chopped)

Instructions


Mix the yeast and honey in water and allow to sit for 10 minutes

Mean while, mix together 6 cups of spelt flour, salt, garlic powder, rosemary, and oregano.

Add the olive oil to the yeast mixture.

Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour about 1/4 of the yeast mixture in. Pull in flour from the sides until the mixes are mixed together. Repeat until fully mixed – on the last pouring in, add the chopped olives.

Knead the dough on a floured surface for 5-10 minutes. 10 minutes is preferible
Add flour to the board as needed.

Roll the dough in flour, covered with a cloth, and allow to rise for 45-60 minutes.

Knead again for 3-5 minutes. cover in flour and allow to rise for another 45-60 minutes.

Transfer the dough onto a tray covered in baking paper and floured, stretch and roll the dough out into a log shape, cut diagonal slits in the top of the loaf (optional, but it does make the bread look very gourmet!), and dust with flour – making sure you get flour into the cuts you have made.

Preheat oven to 180C while you allow the dough to rise for another 30-45 minutes.

Place the tray in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown.

Note:

Serving size depends on your desired thickness of each slice.
