Soft Olive Bread Roll

Happy Friday! How was the week so far? Good or bad, we can relax now.Well, almost. The other day, when I was driving to work, I got all the green lights. Not a single red. I was like “Wow, I have a good feeling that I am gonna have a pretty good day.”  I guess some days we get all the green lights, everything goes the way we plan it. Some days we get all the red. Nothing works. No matter how much effort we put in. Then, all we can do is go with the flow, or just wait with great patience.

Sorry for the mumbling. Back to the recipe. This soft bread roll was the result of a mistake. I had something else in mind. However, when I made the dough, I got so distracted that I put way too much butter in it. It was melted butter. Once it’s in, it’s in. Fortunately, the result wasn’t bad at all. I thought why not share.


I love everything with olives. The olives filling gives so much flavour to the bread roll. I just love it. If anything, I would add more fillings when I make the roll. Unfortunately, that’s all I had that day. Feel free to add more if you love olives. 🙂

  • All purpose flour – 200g
  • Melted butter – 5 tablespoons
  • Milk powder – 4 teaspoons

    • Black olives – 450g, pitted and finely chopped
    • Purple onion – 1/2, finely chopped.

    • Parmesan cheese powder – 10 g


  1. Prepare the dough. Add all dry ingredients together, mix well. Add the water and butter. Knead the dough until it’s smooth.
  2. Cover and leave it in a warm place. Let the dough rise until double the size.

  5. When the dough is ready. Punch out the air and divided into four.
  6. Roll one into a rectangle.
  7. Place 1/4 fillings on one side. Roll the dough from one side to the other. Pinch both sides together.
  8. Spray the surface with olive oil. Sprinkle with sesame seeds as much as you like.
  9. Do the same to the rest of the dough.
  10. Place all bread rolls on a lined baking tray. Cover and let it rise again until double the size.

    • It tastes good. I love everything with olives though. Next time, I would definitely put more fillings. 🙂


  1. Hi Jen! Lovely post, I love baking bread too. I am messaging you because the content of a post in my blog got stolen by a website called I assumed if they’d stolen once they surely had stolen more times. I found this post of yours on their website too: and just wanted to let you know. I am going to try and file a complaint to Google Webmaster Toold, not sure if that will change anything, but since it is a big website (coming up first in organic search results) and have advertising on their site (maling profits out of other people’s content) I thought it is worth a try.

    • Omg, thanks for letting me know. I will check it and file a complaint if necessary. Thanks again for letting me know. I can’t believe they are doing this.
