Focaccia in a Bread Maker

Focaccia in a Bread Maker

How about an easy and fluffy focaccia baked at home.

Ingredients: 4 - 6

●Bread dough
Bread flour
200 g
Cake flour
40 g
Margarine (unsalted butter)
1 tablespoon (15 g)
Skim milk
1 tablespoon
Honey
1 tablespoon
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Water
120 ml
Instant dry yeast
1 teaspoon
Toppings
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon
Rosemary
1 teaspoon (or 1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary)
Garlic powder
a small amount

Steps

1. Put all the bread dough ingredients in a bread maker, and press start. Wait until the 1st rising has finished.
2. Check the dough after 5 minutes, and if it's floury, add 1 ~ 2 tablespoons of water. If it's watery, add 1 - 2 tablespoons of flour.
3. When the cycle is finished, press the air out from the dough. Divide into 4 - 6 portions, and roll into balls. Let rest for 15 minutes.
4. Press the air out again, flatten the dough, and roll out with a rolling pin into 10 - 12 cm diameter circles.
5. Place on a baking sheet and let them rise for the second time (2nd rising). (30 minutes in the oven with the bread-rising function is an estimate.)
6. Preheat the oven to 190℃.
7. Make little dents at 2 cm intervals on the dough with your fingers (or with a 1 cm diameter stick).
8. Brush with the olive oil, and sprinkle with grated cheese, minced rosemary, and garlic powder. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes and they're done.
9. Let cool for 5 - 10 minutes, and enjoy.
10. You can stretch out the dough in a baking sheet instead of making small individual breads. Cut into pieces at the end. (I doubled the ingredients in this photo).
11. I used the same amount as in this recipe and made one huge bread.
