This savoury loaf showcases naturally salty foods such as olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Substitute pitted black olives for green if you prefer.


  1. Measure the water, salt, flours and yeast into the bread pan in the order listed. Place the bread pan into the machine.
  2. Select Program # 2, the appropriate chosen loaf weight and the preferred crust colour. Start the program by pressing the On/Off button.
  3. During the kneading cycle, when the machine sounds, add the olives and capers.
  4. Once the baking cycle starts, brush the surface of the dough with the olive oil and arrange the tomatoes (if using) on top. Sprinkle with coarse salt (if using).
  5. At the end of the program, turn the machine off and remove the bread pan. Turn the bread onto a cooling rack. (If necessary, turn the bread onto its side to remove the kneading paddles with the hook provided.) Cool the bread completely before slicing.
