  • Love bread but can’t eat gluten? Why not try making our delicious olive bread made from gluten-free flour. Add olives, rosemary and parmesan cheese to the bread mixture for extra taste.


    • 200g (7oz) gluten-free white bread flour (we used Doves Farm)
    • 1 level tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp gluten-free baking powder
    • 284ml carton buttermilk
    • 3 medium eggs, lightly beaten
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 pitted, green olives, sliced
    • 1 tsp freshly chopped rosemary leaves, plus 1 sprig, leaves removed
    • 2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    • 900g (2lb) loaf tin, greased and strip-lined


    • Set the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Put the flour, salt and baking powder into the bowl of an electric mixer. Add the buttermilk, eggs and oil, and mix with a dough hook or the beater, to make a smooth batter.

    • Add the olives, chopped rosemary and 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese.

    • Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, sprinkle with the rosemary leaves and rest of the Parmesan. Bake for 50 mins, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
