Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Fennel Bread
There are various types of breads that are common in Greek cooking. Most of them use a simple bread recipe as their base. This bread uses fennel seeds, olives, and grated cheese to give it its unique flavor.
Greek Style Fennel Bread Recipe Ingredients:
- 1 recipe Greek bread
- 2 tablespoon lightly crushed fennel seeds
- 12 pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
- 1/2 cup grated Greek cheese, such as Kefalotiri or Romano cheese
Instructions on How to Bake Greek Style Fennel Bread:
Prepare the bread according to the recipe ingredients. Add the fennel seeds, olives, and cheese just before kneading the dough. Knead it according to the recipe instructions.
Place the dough in an oiled boil after kneading. Brush the top of the dough with oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise until doubled. This should take about 2 hours or so.
Punch the dough down and knead it lightly for two minutes to release the air bubbles. Form into two loaf shapes and place the loaves on an oiled baking sheet. Let them sit on the counter until the loaves have doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the baking sheet in the center of the oven and bake until cooked all the way through. When you tap on the loaf, it should sound hollow. This should take about 30-40 minutes.
