So, you know how sometimes really awesome football games are played on Monday night instead of Sunday? Well, so it is with recipes. This week, and this week only, Recipe Sunday will be posted on Monday night. It’s exciting stuff, folks.
Anyway, let’s get right to it. Since we’re doing things a little different than usual this week, I figured why not feature a recipe for something a little different than usual as well: that would be bread.
I love bread. I love eating it. I love baking it. I love thinking about it. My favorite bread is Focaccia. And after making this recipe, your’s will be too. 🙂
What you’ll need:
15 oz Water
.33 oz Yeast, fresh
1 lb 8 oz Bread Flour
.5 oz Salt
1 oz Olive Oil
What you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 400 degress. Mix the water and yeast in one bowl, and let sit for a few minutes. Mix everything else together in another bowl on low speed, with the dough hook attachment.Once it starts mixing, add water and yeast, and continue mixing for 12 minutes. Coat a half sheet pan with olive oil. Roll out dough and fill pan as much as possible. Ferment for 1 hour, then press dough until ends touch ends of pan, drizzle more olive oil on top, and dock (poke wells into) entire sheet of dough with fingertips. Proof for 25 minute, and dock again. If dry, add more oil. At this point, add toppings if so desired (basil, rosemary, etc). Bake for about 30 minutes. Enjoy with a sandwich or on its own!
