  • 2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup water lukewarm
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup black olives chopped


  • In a small bowl, or the bowl of your mixer, mix together the water, yeast and honey. Let sit until it's foamy.
  • In your mixer bowl, add 1 1/4 cup of the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, yeast mixture, milk, olive oil and salt and pepper. Using the paddle attachment, mix well.
  • Add the olives and cheddar cheese to the mixer and continue mixing. Switch to the hook attachment.
  • Add the remaining all purpose flour and mix for another 4 to 5 minutes, until the dough is nice and firm.
  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let the dough rise until doubled in size, for about an hour.
  • Punch down the dough and place it on a floured surface. Knead it slightly a couple times, then roll it out into a long rectangle.
  • Roll up the dough, jelly roll style.
  • Place the roll in a greased loaf pan and let rise for another 45 minutes to an hour until it doubles in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees.
  • Bake the bread for about 40 minutes, or until golden brown. When you tap it, it should sound hollow.
  • Cool on a rack.


Always check the expiration date on your yeast and make sure it hasn't expired. All your yeast products whether it’s in a jar or a package should be stamped with a “Best if Used by” date. Always make sure you check this date, even when you purchase the yeast, who knows it could have been on the shelf past its expiry date.
To keep your yeast fresh and longer lasting, unopened yeast packages or jars should be stored in a cool or dry place such as your cupboard. However, you can also store your yeast in the fridge or freezer. If you do store it in the freezer and need to use yeast for your baking, make sure you take out the amount you need and let it sit at room temperature for at least half hour before using.
Once your yeast package or jar has been opened, you must refrigerate the yeast or freeze it in an airtight container.
One thing to remember about your yeast, is that it is a living organism and over time it will lose activity, even if you’ve never opened the jar or package. So if you don’t bake often, buy the smaller yeast packages rather than a big jar of yeast.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
