Easy Focaccia Bread January 27, 2009

Filed under: Recipes — Chris Biles @ 11:56 pm

Here’s a great alternative to store-bought, preservative-laden bread for your family. King Arthur Flour has unbleached flour that is a much better choice if you must have your bread fix. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

3 CUPS ALL PURPOSE FLOUR (KING ARTHUR FLOUR)

2 TEASPOONS INSTANT YEAST

1 ¼ TEASPOON SALT

2 TABLESPOONS OLIVE OIL

1 ½ CUPS WARM WATER

1 TEASPOON BAKING POWDER

INSTRUCTIONS

Combine all ingredients and beat for five minutes with an electric mixer set at medium speed or knead by hand. Let mixture sit at room temperature, covered, for 1 hour. (If using quick rise yeast, let sit for 10 minutes).

Scoop the sticky dough/batter into a lightly greased pan. Cover the pan and let the dough rise for an hour, until it looks bubbly and has slightly doubled.

Bake the focaccia in a preheated 400 degree over for 25 minutes until it’s golden brown. Sprinkle is with freshly grated parmesan cheese, coarse salt, and/or fresh rosemary about five minutes before the end of baking time, if desired. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and let it cool on a wire rack.
