Olive and herb bread

About the bake

Herbs and olives are the perfect ingredient to add into bread to give it a seasoned, deep taste. Our Olive and Herb bread promises to taste delicious, and with the help of your bread maker, you'll be serving up warm homemade bread to your guests in no time.

What are the benefits of a bread maker?

A bread maker is very easy to use, and usually comes with a manual in the box. Keep this safe as each bread maker may have different measurements to use.

The key to a great bake in your bread maker is to be precise in your measurements.

Some love the mess of rolling out dough on the surfaces covered with flour, but others prefer a cleaner way of bread making. Bread makers do offer a cleaner way of baking - which may save time and effort with washing up bowls and flour dust.
