Focaccia Bread #BreadBakers
This is my first post for Bread bakers and this time our host Sonia Gupta from Sonlicious asked us to bake flat bread with yeast or starter. I am making Focaccia bread with yeast for the same. Thank You Sonia for hosting the event.
Focaccia is a flat oven-baked Italian bread similar in style and texture to pizza doughs. It may be topped with herbs or other ingredients. It is typical of Liguria, but is popular throughout Italy and is usually seasoned just with olive oil and salt. Sometimes herbs are added, and at times topped with onion or cheese or any other vegetables. Focaccia can be used as a side to many meals. (Source Wikipedia)
- 250 gms All Purpose Flour (Maida)
- 10 gms of Semolina (Rawa)
- 1 Sachet (7 gms) Fast action Dry yeast (2 1/2-3/4 teaspoon)
- Salt to taste + more for Sprinkling
- 160 ml Luke warm water (more or less might be required)
- 25 ml of olive oil + extra
- 1 tablespoon of herbs – Crush lightly with your palms (I used dry oregano, basil and parsley, one can use any combination. Try using fresh herbs) (Optional)
- 3-4 cherry tomatoes halved (Optional)
- 5-6 Julienne Onion strips (Optional)
- Mix the flour, semolina, yeast and salt.
- Mix the water with Olive oil.
- Make a well in the center of dry ingredients, gradually add in the water and oil mixture and start mixing it slowly with your hand.
- Once it forms a rough shape, take the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until smooth, elastic and springy to touch.
- Place the dough in a large floured mixing bowl and leave to rise in a warm place for 60-90 minutes until double.
- Preheat the oven to 200 Degrees C.
- Grease a baking tray (8.5 inch x 8.5 inch) with oil and sprinkle some salt.
- Place the dough in a oiled baking tray. Rub some oil in your fingers and prod out the dough to the edges of the tray.
- Press the tomatoes and onion into the dough.
- Sprinkle with salt and drizzle olive oil on the top.
- Bake it in a preheated oven for 30 minutes until golden and cooked through.
- Remove from the oven, let it cool for 5-10 minutes.
