Garden Herb Focaccia #breadbakers

This Garden Herb Focaccia is rich with extra virgin olive oil and herbs fresh from my garden.

I got one thing to say, this garden herb focaccia needs to be drug thru a puddle of extra virgin olive oil or whatever pasta sauce you have on your plate. If you do not do either of these then I feel real sorry for you.

I made this herb focaccia for my #Breadbakers group. This months #breadbaker is hosted by Cooks Hideout.

Garden Herb Focaccia

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
5 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons powered milk
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose flour
4 tablespoons mixed herbs(I used rosemary, thyme and chives)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, butter, milk, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky)

Turn on a floured surface; kneed until smooth and elastic about 6 minutes. Add herbs and kneed into dough. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Placed on a baking tray. Cover and let rise until doubled about 30 minutes. With fingertips make several dimples over top of dough.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the middle sounds hollow. After baking brush with extra virgin olive oil

    Foccacia is one of my very favorite breads, and your bread came out amazing. I agree that it’s the perfect bread for EVOO and parmesan dipping.

    This would be the perfect dipping bread and I have just the mixture for it since my husband came back from Italy with some special aged balsamic and olive oil. Lovely bread, Vonnie!

    Oh how funny! Besides, focaccia would not be right if it wasn’t dipped in olive oil.
