Method

Try making this no-fuss focaccia recipe. It's great to have over the weekend and lovely eaten with a delicious, fresh salad or leftover chicken.

  1. In a large bowl, mix the bread mix, pinch of salt, yeast, 2tbsp of rapeseed oil and 320ml (1/2 pint) lukewarm water. Gently stir with your hand or wooden spoon to form a dough and knead for five minutes until it becomes a smooth, springy and soft dough.
  2. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave to prove in a warm place for 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  3. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 8, 230°C, fan 210°C.
  4. After proving, add the garlic and 2tsp rosemary. Shape into a rough 22cm round and place on a large greased baking tray. Brush with 1tbsp rapeseed oil, sprinkle over the 1tsp rosemary and a pinch of salt.
  5. Press dimples into the bread with a wooden spoon handle. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and sounds hollow when the base is tapped.
  6. Drizzle over 1tbsp rapeseed oil and allow to cool.

Tip

Ideal served warm simply with a dip of cold pressed rapeseed oil and balsamic vinegar as a starter. This works just as well with standard white bread mix.
