    A little confused … you say to add all ingredients to the bread machine, then last you say to add the olives a bit at a time when the machine beeps … I’m unsure about exactly when the olives go in to the mix. Would appreciate if you could please clarify as I am anxious to try this recipe.
    Many thanks.

      I usually add a lot more olives and am quite liberal with the seasonings. I throw in some “italian seasoning” too. Adding a bit of parmesean cheese never hurts either!

      P.S. I don’t bother with pre-mixing the flour and seasonings.
