Quorning Ware Quickies - Mediterranean Quick Bread

I love quick breads, but one can only consume so much Orange Cranberry, Banana Nut, Zucchini and Oatmeal Raisin bread before one's sweet tooth becomes overloaded.   This is one of my favorite savory versions.

Drenched with butter, it is quite a treat and it makes and excellent breakfast bread to accompany eggs.

Kalamata Olives not your thing?  That's OK, this is equally delicious with oil cured olives or just good old California Black Olives in the tin can; which just happen to be available pre-minced to save you some time. 

Mediterranean Quick Bread

2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 TB Sugar
3 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
9 oz Whole Milk
3 large Eggs
3 oz Olive Oil
2/3 cup chopped Pistachios
4 TB Kalamata Olives, minced (or other Greek Olive)

Corning Ware 9x5 inch Bread Pan (P-315)

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees, then grease and flour the P-315 Bread Dish; set aside.

In a large bowl, place Flour, Sugar, Baking Powder and Salt; whisking to combine.

In a medium bowl, add Milk, Eggs and Olive oil...

Whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Finely chop both the Pistachios and the Olives.

Add them to the liquid mixture and stir to combine.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture.

Stir with a spatula until just combined.

Pour into the awaiting P-315 Bread Dish.

Bake on the lowest rack of the oven for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the P-315 before turning out onto a wire rack and cool completely....

before taking a big slice.

mmmmmmmm  Warm and delicious!

Where is your Corning Ware??
