The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge: No 13. Focaccia

It's time for another installment of my attempt to bake my way through Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book, The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread.

The thirteenth recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is Focaccia.

I love Focaccia and would eat it every day if I could but I don't make it all that often. I was so happy when this recipe came up in the book! The book had several variations but I decided to do the simple herb & garlic one.

Now, this isn't the healthiest bread ever made but boy is it darn tasty. My favourite part of the process was massaging the herbed oil into the dough. I like it when I can get down and dirty with my food. ;) Enjoy!

Show some love to the other challenge participants in this challenge.

Up next: French Bread!

What a gorgeous Focaccia. I've never attempted to make it and I'm not much of a baker, but I would love to give it a try with various toppings.

Sometimes you have to just say "what the heck" and go for what tastes good. Focaccia's take time but otherwise easy-peasy and did I mention tasty?
