Olive baguettes

I made these rustic and easy baguettes just because homemade bread is always great. I wanted to spice a regular baguette up a little bit and that's why I added olives.

Ingredients for about four middle long baguettes:

200g green olives
4dl spelt flour
3dl wheat flour
2,5dl milk
25g yeast
50g butter
Sesame seeds

First mix the flours and dry yeast. Add the lukewarm milk and melted butter and finally the olives. This bread doesn't really need any added salt as olives are fairly salty. In order to avoid too much saltiness also use unsalted butter.

Knead until you have a firm bread dough. Let the dough rise covered with a tea towel for about one hour. When it's ready to be baked it should be fluffy and easy to handle.

Divide the dough into four parts and shape baguettes of it. Then sprinkle sesame seeds on them and bake at 225C for 10-15 minutes until the bread is nicely baked.

Enjoy fresh or on the next day. They are really nice as breakfast but then you'd have to get up early enough for the preparations.
