This Amazing Healthy Focaccia is absolutely such a treat!
And this is how you make this:
1 kg sifted flour – preferable ancient dinkel flour (can also mix half with buckwheat flour)
50 gram dried yeast
1 tbs raw honey
1 – 2 tbs raw sugar or sukrin
1 – 2 tbs himalayan- or sea salt
9 dl lukewarm water. Preferable alkaline, filtered water
2 dl extra virgin, organic olive oil
1 tsp rosmary
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
~sundried tomtoes, olives and/ or feta cheese could also be good toppings~
Warm the water up to 37°C (bodytemp)
Mix the flour and the yeast, and sift it twice - or do the amazing trick with your Baloon Whip. Check out my YouTube video to see how. It will really make a difference to the end result. Making the bread more moist and fluffy.
Add sugar and salt
Mix the honey into the water and add it while blending the dough. I use my Kitchen Aid blender so that the dough can get knead for a couple of minutes.
The end result should be very sticky, so don`t add more flour. That will end up making the focaccia dry.
Let the dough raise for about an hour under a kitchen towel.
Prepare the baking pan - I just use the one who comes with the oven. Either use a nonstick paper, or grease the pan with butter.
After an hour – pour the dough into the large baking pan. Pour the oil mixture on top of the dough and use your fingers to make small holes in it.
Now let it raise for another 15 minutes.
Meanwhile – turn on the oven to 225°C
Let it bake for 15 minutes in the middle of the oven.
