Fresh from the oven – Focaccia

This months challenge is hosted by Brooke of Ed and Brooke and she chose focaccia. We could use any recipe we liked so I chose one from River Cottage Hnadbook No. 3 Bread. I decided to add some green olives to the top for a change along with the sea salt and olive oil. The result was very tasty but perhaps a little salty tasting due to the combination of the salt and the olives.

Focaccia is a favorite bread of mine. They are simple to make, yet look quiet impressive, they’re versitile, delicious and an ideal accompaniment to many meals. I have used this recipe once before and will definitely be continuing with this recipe. I would really recommend the River cottage Hnadbook Bread to anyone who makes their own bread (recipes are not for breadmakers, make by hand or in a mixer).

  1. I've only done focaccia once and it was delicious although I was rather heavy handed with the salt. I must give it another go soon. I'm going to be joining Fresh from the Oven from next month so it'll be good to compare notes with every one.
