This is how Sabina French describes these buns in her book Flour and water where this recipe comes from.

drożdżowe pieczywo Bułeczki oliwkowe


  • 10 g of fresh yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 160 g of lukewarm water
  • 350 ​​g of all-purpose wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil plus some for spread
  • pinch of salt
  • 120 g of pitted dark olives, preferably kalamata


  1. Dissolve yeast with honey in water and leave for 5 minutes.
  2. Sift flour into a bowl, add a pinch of salt and pour water with yeast and honey
  3. Mix everything and knead (preferably with a mixer with a hook) until the ingredients combine.
  4. Add the olive oil and knead until the dough is uniform, smooth and elastic.
  5. The well-kneaded dough is covered with a damp cloth and left in a warm place for about 1 - 1.5 hours.
  6. While the dough is rising, chop the olives into small cubes and, if necessary, drain them in a sieve.
  7. When the dough has doubled in volume, add the chopped olives and knead them again.
  8. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces, form balls and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. We can form balls, weave snails, or give buns any shape.
  9. Cover with a cloth and leave for about 15 minutes.
  10. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  11. Before baking, flatten the buns slightly with your hand and brush with olive oil.
  12. Bake in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until golden brown.
