Mediterranean Quick Bread

This is a really easy bread that comes together quickly (obviously).
I like it as a side, as opposed to using it for a sandwich.  The texture is more cake like than that of your average bread.  But without all the sugar.

** And don't worry about the grain flour if you don't have it - I've made it with all white flour and it turns out great.
Mediterranean Quick Bread
Recipe from Our Family Treat

1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. whole grain flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. dried oregano
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/4 c. olive oil

chopped sun dried tomatoes
chopped olives
chopped pine nuts
parmesan cheese

In a bowl mix the dry ingredients together.
In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, eggs and oil.
Add about half of the liquid to the dry mixture and blend.
Add whatever optional ingredients you are using (I used sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts and parmesan), and fold into bread mix.
Pour remaining liquid into bowl, stirring until combined (it should look like a thick pancake batter).

Pour into a greased pan; pizza, bread or casserole dish, depending on how thick you want it.
Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
