My very first post since the blog first birthday. Yaaaaay! ^^
Foccacia is one of my favourite bread for making sandwiches and croutons. And it’s very easy to make too. There’s something about focaccia that I really like a lot compare to other bread. But I dunno what 😛
Since it’s very cold and raining all day today here, I’m just gonna write a short post. In my family, we call this kind of weather “staying-home-cuddle-and-watch-movie-together-weather” while enjoying a cup of warm tea or hot chocolate and some homemade treats. So I want to make sure to have some time to enjoy the cold weather 😀
Recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver
- 500g all purpose flour
- 300ml warm water
- 12g dried yeast
- 1 tbsp sugar
- sea salt
- olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- dried rosemary
- Place the flour in a mixing bowl, add dry yeast, a pinch of salt and sugar.
- Add water slowly and mix until everything incorporated.
- Knead for about 5 minutes (by hands) or until the dough is nice, smooth and springy.
- Shape the dough into a ball, place it in a large bowl, cover with a plastic wrap or damp towel and let it rest for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
- When it’s ready, knead the dough a bit more to let the air out from it.
- Shape it into a rectangle / the size of a pan you’re using.
- Since I’m using garlic powder and dried rosemary, I just slightly sprinkled the garlic powder and rosemary on the bread. But if you’re using fresh ingredients, you can follow Jamie’s instruction.
- Drizzle some olive oil and let it rest again for another hour or until doubled in size.
- Preheat your oven to 220°C.
- Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt and pepper and bake it for 20 to 25 minutes. The surface should be nice light brown colour.
Have a good weekend!
