Olive Chia Seed Sandwich Loaf

Labels: { , }

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

A very aromatic, soft and easy to make sandwich loaf flecked with chopped black olives and chia seeds. This bread will be a hit if you love olive and it’s perfect for sandwiches, canapés and as a great addition to your bread basket on the dinner table.

  • 400 g All purpose flour
  • 10 g Dried yeast
  • 1 tsp Coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Black salt
  • 120 g Warm milk
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 1 Egg white
  • 60 g Butter, melted
  • 4 tsp Chia seeds
  • 100 g Black olives, chopped
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 tbsp Chopped nuts for the topping, optional
  1. Lightly grease a 9cm-deep, 11 x 22cm loaf pan with olive oil and line with baking paper.
  2. Combine flour, yeast and coconut sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer. Stir in salt. Make a well in the centre. Add in milk, egg yolks, egg white and melted butter. Mix on the slow speed until the ingredients roughly come together. Increase the speed and knead for 5-8 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Turn out the dough and shape into a ball. Brush the mixing bowl with a little bit of olive oil to grease. Return the dough to the mixing bowl and cover with a damp tea towel. Set aside in a warm, draught-free place to prove for 45 - 60 minutes or until the dough has almost doubled in size.
  4. Punch down the centre of the dough with your fist. Knead for 2 minutes or until the dough is elastic and has returned to its original size.
  5. Roll out the dough into a square. Sprinkle with the chia seeds and chopped olives. Fold the dough in half to enclose the seeds and olives and knead until well combined.
  6. Divide the dough into 3 even pieces and round up. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Roll out each dough to about 15 x 25 cm rectangle with a rolling pin. Fold the dough towards the centre from left and right. Rotate the dough 90 degrees and roll it up. Place the seam side down into the prepared loaf pan. Repeat with the other two dough balls.
  7. Cover with a damp tea towel. Set aside in a warm, draught-free place to prove for 30 minutes or until the dough has almost doubled in size.
  8. Brush the top of the loaf with egg white and sprinkle with the chopped nuts. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the base. Turn onto a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve at room temperature. | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

It's been difficult finding bread at the supermarkets here- the shelves are all empty! I've got lots of chia seeds on hand- I'll have to make this bread (probably will taste better than the bread in the stores, anyway)!
