makes one loaf
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour 200 g spelt
3/4 cup whole wheat flour 100 g buckwheat
2 /2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T. fresh rosemary, chopped coarsely (or 1 t. dried rosemary, chopped fine)
3/4 cup olives* drained and chopped coarsely


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine first 4 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Into mixer, place eggs, milk, honey and olive oil. Using paddle, mix at low speed for 3-4 minutes, until combined. At slow speed, add 3/4 of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Set speed at medium and combine for 2 minutes until incorporated. Add olives and rosemary. Combine at medium speed. Add remaining dry ingredients and allow mixture to combine for 3 minutes.

Transfer dough to a greased loaf pan (approximately 8″x 4″). Place pan on lower 1/3 of oven and bake for 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out dry. Allow to cool in pan for 15 minutes. Transfer loaf to a baking rack to cool for at least 30 minutes. Can be served warm or at room temperature.

*You can use any type of olives you wish. I happened to have Manzanilla olives, or green olives stuffed with pimento. I love how the salt plays off of the sweet of the honey!
