Baking isn’t my forte..Mostly because I don’t usually have time for what I call “extra curricular cooking” meaning I’ve only really been cooking dinner with no dessert or appetizers and nothing really made from scratch. Last weekend however, I decided to try baking bread and I found a few really easy recipes..so I started with this Rosemary Focaccia.
Ingredients: 3 c. flour, 1/3 c. olive oil, 1 1/2 c. water, dried rosemary, 1 packet active dry yeast, garlic powder, and salt. (note: I had to add water until the dough wasn’t sticky so I’m actually not sure how much water it was)
Mixed everything together in a large bowl and kneaded it together. You’re supposed to cover and put it aside for an hour or 2 to let the yeast rise, but I was a little impatient and waited like 30 min.
I tried to put a design on it but it didn’t really turn out. Put it in the oven on 375 for 30 min or until golden brown. I think I waited a little long because the crust was a little too hard.
It still turned out really tasty though and I had it with almost every meal throughout the week…Basic bread and butter never fail.
