Hello everybody! As I have been posting more and more recipes on the request of you guys, one simple recipe is always asked for – my go to bread recipe that is. Really, it is not even mine as it is my fiance who does most of the baking in our house, so I gave you his focaccia recipes here. It is simply the most delicious bread I have ever had. Making bread, and tons of other things from scratch can save you a lot of packaging and trash. Plus the quality, and smell omg, of homemade bread cannot be bought. Tell me in the comments what kind of bread you prefer to make, and keep leaving requests for recipes!
YOU WILL NEED: Yeast, flour, salt, olive oil and rosemary. You can also add a ton of other ingredients along with the rosemary, so whatever you prefer, it is completely optional.
HOW TO: Dissolve 10 g of yeast into 1 cup of tempered water and let it sit for 2 minutes. Add flour, around three cups, but add a little at a time and check the consistency as you go. Also, add a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of virgin olive oil. Mix the dough until it stops sticking to the table, but is still moist (A moist dough rises well). Knead the dough with your warm hands for about 20 minutes, stretching the gluten, to help the dough rise. Leave under a clean cloth to rise for about 45 minutes, or until the dough has risen to twice its size. Knead the dough again for 5 minutes and place into a bread pan or any ovenproof dish. Squeeze indents into the dough with your fingers, and springe with salt. Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil on the dough and finish with needles of rosemary. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes at 200 degrees C or until golden brown on top.
The dough can also be left in the fridge overnight, and baked in the morning. This option is highly recommended as focaccia in the morning is simply divine!
