2nd batch of this is done...I found that 400ml was way too much water for my climate - did it the other way around after realizing I'd added almost 2c flour and it was still too wet. Cut the fluid back to 200ml and added until it was 'right' but this tastes absolutely delicious, thank you for sharing this!

Awesome writing and recipe! The way you described it made me want to try it immediately. Thanks for the recipe.

2008-02-06T10:43:00.000-05:00

Lol I don't know what the problem was because even after 2 extra cups of flour it was hardly a stiff dough. It's not the first time I've made foccacia but definitely the first time I had to pour it out of the bowl.

I vaguely remember this story, and I certainly remember focaccia....I may have to try it one of these days!

Hi Helene- Bienvenue et bonne chance!

Hi Terrie- Survived is a good choice of words! Glad you enjoyed the story.

Hi Emeline- Thanks for reading! No, not too exhausted yet, just taking it one day at a time...hope you got inspired for your own antipasto party. Oscars are coming up, you know!

Hi Nora- Yes, who knows what I would be doing right now if I hadn't had that crossroads!

Hi Jennifer- No, no typo and I've been making this recipe for years! I do add a few extra handfuls of flour during the kneading process..but certainly not CUPS! It is a very soft dough, not meant to be as stiff as regular bread dough. Good luck!

Hi Cakewardrobe- Welcome to UtHC! How exciting you are coming up to our city! I'll drop you an email.

Hi Lynn- It's a pretty satisfying baking experience. Enjoy it hot!

Hi Deb- Good luck! The baking time depends on your oven, I guess. Mine is a little on the hot side and everything browns quickly. Have a peak at the bottom of the focaccia toward the end of the baking period. It should be a light golden color.

Hi Michelle- You rock! Glad you are trying my recipes.

So interesting Aimee, that I come upon your post today because the last few days I have been struggling with focaccia. I want to make a nice one so bad, but have not had success yet. I even went to my local grocery store and went to the baker and he sold me some of his premade dough! I even screwed it up! So in my attempt to make a nice foccia, I am going to go step by step with your recipe. My problem comes usually with the oven. What temp do I use and how long to leave it in! I have been doing 400 degress for about 30 minutes. It came out too brown and the other night I did the same and it come out, not done! If you have any more pointers, I surely would appreciate your suggestions!
Your story is like a fairy tale to me! You are one lucky girl! (and talented too!) Nice photos!

2008-02-03T13:33:00.000-05:00

Was the 400ml of water a typo? I've been making bread for years and against my better judgement followed the recipe as written and it was an absolute disaster. I had to add an extra 2+ cups of flour to get a reasonable dough. Before that it was a soaking wet mess of glue. I looked at other foccacia recipes and they all call for 250ml of water with all of the same measures for the other ingredients. It's rising now and hopefully it turns out okay otherwise I'll be tossing it out and starting again.

Aimee that is such a brilliant story and explains a lot.

I made a potato focaccia for a Daring Baker challenge that we loved and I wanted to find a recipe for one without potato. I'm going to make George's focaccia this weekend without fail. Thanks for posting it.
