Ginger Terrine Bread with Black Olives & Thyme

I love homemade bread and recently have been making a lot!
It’s just so delicious that you can just eat it by itself.
One of my favourites, is bread with black olives and seeds.
So the other day I decided to make one but I also wanted to make a bread with some fresh ginger.
And the result was a super moist and delicious bread with ginger, olives and thyme.
It actually turned out to be a really successful combination.

The ginger adds some spiciness to the thyme and olives and makes the bread irresistible.
Especially when it’s still hot, out of the oven.
Well, mine was half finished when still hot.:-) But as I said, you can’t resist.
It is also lovely with some butter. Mmmm, I think I’m gonna have some now.
Here’s what you need for this yumminess.:-)

Tip: Do not fill the terrine form to the top, if the mixture is too much, leave a bit. I have filled it up and half of the mixture dripped on my freshly cleaned oven!
