I'm back from more than 2 weeks business trip and couldn't wait to start on the Jeffrey Hamelman's challenge. Well, it didn't quite happen. With my failed attempt of the Jeffrey Hamelman's Baguette with Poolish, and failed attempt to make my own malt flour, still looking for high gluten flour for my Jeffrey Hamelman's bagel, well, I adhered to my son's appeal for Olive Bread. He simply loves olives.
At least my Olive Bread turns out as expected, although I thought for a moment, that I lost my touch on shaping the dough as the olive started spilling out, making it difficult to fold the dough without affecting bubbles.
It turns out surprisingly soft and chewy on the inside.
