1. Put all the dough ingredients in the order listed in the bread pan fitted with the kneading paddle. Secure the bread pan in the Cuisinart® Custom Convection
Bread Maker. Put the olives in the Automatic Mix-in Dispenser.
2. Press Menu to select the French/Italian program. Press Loaf Size and Crust Color to select both size and crust preference. Press Confirm to confirm choices
and then press Start/Stop/Pause to begin the program.
3. This particular recipe yields a rather wet dough; for this reason we do not recommend removing the paddle.
4. When the cycle is complete, remove the bread pan from the machine and transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
