Make It Yourself...Quick Bread Mix Olive Quick Bread



I made the quick bread mix recipe last week, and shared some with Myrna.  This is the bread recipe I chose to make from it, as I like savory bread, and I especially like olives.
It was really convenient to just get my extra ingredients ready, and mix the batter right up.  I baked it in my good toaster oven, and it baked nicely.  It looked like a lot of batter, but it didn’t raise a lot, and next time I will make it in my 8 ½ x 4 ½” bread pan for a higher, more square slice, even though the recipe called for a 9 x 5” pan – it won’t taste any different, but may make a prettier slice.  Check our quick bread hints for baking times for smaller pans for gifts.  I think you could fill your pans 2/3 full.
