This moist and flavorful quick bread is from a lovely vegetarian cookbook I just read through. Mediterranean Harvest is a wonderful collection of fresh recipes from the entire Mediterranean region. And when I say the ‘entire’ region, I mean not just southern France and Greece, but Spain, Italy, Northern Africa, Lebanon, Israel….the list goes on and on. An easy bread to make and hands-down, one of the best quick breads I have tasted to-date. Filled with ripe green olives and nutty Gruyere cheese, the top of the bread gets browned and a bit crisp, while the interior crumb of the bread really moist and eggy.
