Man alive, that food was good. And I didn't take any pictures. Boo!
However, due to the rave reviews on the bread, I promised to share the recipe. I am also sharing because I like to post blogs feel special.
Thank you for making me feel special.
Alright, moving on.....
Darcie's Speedy Focaccia!
1.5 cups warm water
3 tablespoons olive oil (plus more for drizzling)
1.25 teaspoons salt
3.5 cups flour
1 tablespoon instant yeast
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped (I use dried...just a little less...)
0.5 teaspoon garlic salt or kosher salt
Lightly grease 9X13 pan and drizzle with small amount of olive oil. Combine all ingredients except the rosemary and garlic/kosher salt. Beat at high speed for 1 minute. Scoop into pan, smoosh down, cover lightly with plastic wrap and let rise 1 hour at room temperature. Poke dough all over with finger and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with rosemary and garlic/kosher salt.
Bake at 375 for 35049, until golden brown. Remove, let stand 5 minutes and then turn onto cooling rack.
For the dinner party, I multiplied everything by 1.5 and used the same size pan. This gave some height to the bread.
Yum yum yum! I love carbs!
