The Focaccia Magic: A Sneak Peek

When it comes to bread, focaccia stands tall as a quintessential Italian delicacy that boasts a soft and airy interior, crowned with a golden and flavorful crust. While traditional focaccia is known for its longer fermentation process involving sourdough, we’ve got a shortcut that retains all the incredible taste without the wait – a little instant yeast!

Ingredients That’ll Make You Smile:

  • 500g all-purpose flour
  • 7g instant yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 350ml lukewarm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (plus a little extra for drizzling)
  • Toppings of your choice (sliced olives and rosemary, in our case)

The Brisbane Sourdough Pan: Your Secret Weapon

For this magical creation, we’ve enlisted the help of The Brisbane Sourdough Pan. Its innovative design ensures even heat distribution, allowing your focaccia to achieve that perfect golden hue while maintaining the signature fluffy interior. Prepare to be blown away by the results!

Crafting Your Fluffy Focaccia:

  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a separate container, combine the instant yeast with the lukewarm water and let it rest for a few minutes until frothy.
  2. Pour the yeast mixture and olive oil into the flour mixture. Mix until a sticky dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel, and let it rise for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
  5. Preheat your oven to 220°C (430°F).
  6. Gently transfer the dough to The Brisbane Sourdough Pan and press it down to fill the pan evenly.
  7. Use your fingertips to create those iconic focaccia dimples. Drizzle olive oil generously over the dough’s surface.
  8. Time to get creative! Top your focaccia with sliced olives, fresh rosemary, or any toppings your heart desires.
  9. Let the focaccia rest for another 20 minutes to rise slightly.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the aroma fills your kitchen.
  11. Once out of the oven, resist the urge to dig in immediately. Allow your creation to cool slightly before cutting it into squares and serving.
