Very delish! This turned out so nice and moist. Hubby asked what I was doing with a pot of water sitting in the oven, but now we know! I added some carmelized onion to one half of the loaf and some dried tomatoes to the whole thing. Yummy!
What a delightful bread! I actually had a recipe for focaccia bread before this, which I thought was pretty good, but I will be using this one from now on. It is light, cooks to a beautiful golden brown and easily makes two 12 inch rounds. Make sure you use fresh, real Parmesan cheese and fresh rosemary for the best taste. And I thought it got even better the next day for lunch! Worth noting: the time given to prepare and cook it is a bit misleading. If you count all the rising times you'll need at least an hour and a half from start to finish. Still, it's definitely worth the effort. Also, I only needed about 2/3 cup potato water to bring the dough together.
Great bread, I used olives, some sundried tomatoes and a little onion. All three. But loved the recipe. Turned out great.
This is one of those "if I can do it, anybody can do it" recipes. I'm the world's worst bread baker, but I managed to turn out just about perfect focaccia with this recipe. I divided the dough in half and baked half plain and the other half with the olives and rosemary. I actually prefer the plain, but both are delicious. This has perfect focaccia texture - golden, crispy crust with chewy interior. Wonderful.
Yum!!! Very easy to make since you're mostly using the food processor. The flavor is excellent and it rose beautifully. Highly recommended! Thanks Rita!
With the potato, this was a bit more work than my other facaccia recipe, but the end result was very good. I had a bit of a problem with the center not being really done when the edges were quite done. I am wondering if I should remove the bread from the oven while it preheats up to temperature; or maybe I need to make sure my pan underneath has boiling water in it. The flavor combination of the rosemary, olives, and parmesan was excellent.
Rita this was very good and easy to make. Served this with baked spaghetti that my sister and I put together for our home study group. Thanks
Well, I had to try this and seeing as it did not require a bread machine, off to making this I went! At first I thought it may be more than I could handle, but as surprised as I was, this came out GREAT and was delicious!! I am now the proud maker of bread, and thank you for a great focaccia recipe that I will use over and over again. This will be great for sandwiches and you MUST use fresh herbs! :)
This was so delicous that half of it was eaten before dinner was even ready. Great Flavor and pretty easy to make. I will make this one again and again!
