Step 1 of 14

COMBINE evaporated milk, butter, sugar and bouillon in a small saucepan over medium heat.

STIR constantly until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; let cool to room temperature.

COMBINE water and dry yeast in a small bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to activate yeast.

Step 4 of 14

ADD flour to the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Make well in the center of the flour and add yeast mixture, milk mixture and 1 beaten egg.

KNEAD on low speed with dough hook attachment until dough is elastic and no longer sticky.

Step 6 of 14

PLACE dough in a large, lightly oiled bowl.

COVER with plastic wrap and set in a warm area for 1 ½ to 2 hours. Dough should double in size.

TRANSFER dough to a lightly floured surface; knead and roll out to a 15 x 12-inch rectangle.

Step 9 of 14

SPREAD ham and raisins evenly over rolled out dough, keeping a ½-inch dough border. Arrange a row of olives close to border and another row closer to the middle (this will ensure every slice has at least two pieces of olive).

ROLL dough up into a loaf. Place on baking sheet. Wet fingers with lukewarm water and spread on seam and sides, pinching sides shut and sealing the seam. Cover roll with plastic wrap and a towel and let rest for 1 hour.

Step 11 of 14

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

Step 12 of 14

BRUSH top of loaf with remaining beaten egg; pierce loaf with fork.

BAKE for 40 to 45 minutes or until bread is golden brown. Remove from oven; let cool for 15 minutes and serve.

Add a layer of pancetta or bacon for a variation of flavor. For a spicy kick, add pickled jalapeños.
