I have recreated this loaf from Silvia Colloca. It’s great that it doesn’t use butter. I love the addition of all herbs and great with bacon. I have also use skim milk and truffle infused olive oil.
This loaf is easy, moist, savoury delicious. Enjoyed it very much. Let’s bake!!!!
1-1/2 cups Baker’s plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup grated 4 cheese cheese
1/2 cup (30g) fresh basil, coriander,oregano, parsley,rosemary,sage, spring onion, thyme chopped
12 pitted olives, finely chopped
300g diced bacon, chopped
3/4 cup skim milk (184g)
3/4 cup (188g) Natural low fat Yogurt
1/4 cup (65g) truffle infuse olive oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
Extra grated 4 cheese for topping
Sift flour and baking powder and stir in cheese, herbs and bacon. Make a well in the centre and pour in the combined milk, yogurt, oil and egg. Stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined loaf tin. Sprinkle over a little extra grated cheese and bake in preheated 190°C oven for approx. 40-50 minutes until golden brown, and a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool.
