A lovely tasty bread that I've made a couple of times, once using normal green pesto and once using sun dried tomato pesto.
200ml water
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp pesto ( in my case, very heaped)
425g strong white flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1.25 tsp fast action yeast
125g pitted and chopped olives
…….and my own addition to the recipe
Half a dozen sun dried tomato bits, chopped up and a handful of chopped up pickled onions.

Did it on the raisin cycle for white bread (4 hrs on my machine) put everything in the machine in the correct order for your machine, except for chopped olives,toms and onions. Put those in on the raisin beep. And a few hours later….ta da!

I had a pot of home made pesto in the fridge from the weekend and it needed using up so I decided to have a go at a pesto bread. I didn't follow the recipe but just made a standard loaf and stirred in the rocket pesto (which was made using mixed seeds instead of pine nuts, grated cheese and soft cheese).

The dough looked slightly green but the loaf came out ok. I didn't get much of a pesto taste but I did detect some cheese flavours.

Made another loaf yesterday from the recipe book, this time it was supposed to be Red Leicester and caramelised onions, did the onions but added mustard seed and a slab of blacksticks blue that needed eating rather than the Red Leicester, again it was delicious.
