Breadmaker Foccacia Recipe

I absolutely love my breadmaker so I thought I would share one of my favourite recipes. There is nothing like the smell of fresh bread and the breadmaker makes it all so easy. I don't use it very often to cook full loaves, I mainly use it for making dough which I then shape and cook in the oven. The most popular recipe in our house is for foccacia bread. This recipe can be adapted in so many ways and is delicious.
Breadmaker Foccacia Bread
  • 2 teaspoons Surebake yeast
  • 3 cups high grade flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 300mls water
Set the breadmaker to the dough cycle. After the cycle is complete, shape it into a large flat loaf (or two smaller loaves). Create dimples in the top by pressing your finger into the dough every few centimetres. Leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes if possible.

Combine the following ingredients and brush evenly over the surface of the dough:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Bake at 200 degrees celcius for 20-25 minutes. Cut it into pieces, pop it in a basket (I got mine from Storage Box) and enjoy!
