|1||Prepare the olive mixture by mixing 50 g olive oil, 100 g black olives and 100 g green olives (roughly chopped), 1 garlic clove (finely chopped) and ½ teaspoon herbes de Provence.||10 min.|
|2||In bread-making, the water temperature is always important. It's not a fixed value, but related to 3 other temperatures: 1) the temperature of your flour, 2) the room temperature in your kitchen, and 3) the basic temperature of this recipe, which is 56-60°C.
You can calculate the temperature of the water for this recipe in one click, using this small calculator.
|3||Put into a food processor bowl: 350 ml water at the right temperature, 9 g salt, 15 g yeast and - if possible - 150 g Soured dough.
Knead on slowest speed (1) for 10 minutes.
Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.
|4||Add the olive mixture.||2 min.|
|5||Knead on slowest speed for a few more minutes, until the dough is evenly mixed.||5 min.|
|6||Turn the dough out onto the worktop and gather it into a ball. Put this into a large bowl, cover with a sheet of plastic and leave to rest for 2 hours.||2 hours|
|7||After this time, divide the dough into pieces of around 250 grammes each.||5 min.|
|8||Form these lumps of dough into squares or rectangles.||5 min.|
|9||Arrange the loaves on a lightly floured cloth. A traditional French banneton is ideal for this, but not essential.
Cover with a sheet of plastic and leave to rest for 1 hour.
|10||Preheat the oven for 250°C (480°F) and bake for around 30 minutes.
Note: As when baking any bread, you should ensure that the oven is filled with steam for the first 15 minutes of baking. This page shows you how; it really is the secret of golden-brown, crusty loaves..
