Foccacia - a bit of baking

Well as my blog states I am a bit partial to baking. I don't do it as often as I used to, or as often as I'd like, but today I decided I fancied some foccacia. I've never made it before and have to say that it didn't rise as much as it should have but that is probably due to two factors 1) I didn't have anywhere warm to put it so just used a very low temp oven, but maybe still too hot, and 2) I didn't have enough strong white flour so substituted half with strong wholemeal. I used Lorraine Pascale 's recipe and used sundries tomatoes and basil.

The start of the process in my lovely Kenwood Chef mixer.
Just before it went into the oven (was hoping it would rise more when cooking) I'm not 100% happy with it but...
... it get the thumbs up from the family so that's good. Dipping in balsamic vinegar and olive oil! THE best way to enjoy! Yum yum!


  1. Yes please, looks really tasty to me

  2. YUM! I adore foccacia bread ...... and balsamic and oil? my idea of heaven!!
