This focaccia is excellent! The dough is slightly sweet and it rises beautifully. It is a total winner in my book!!!
- 3+1/2 to 4 C. all-purpose flour
- 1 package active dry yeast
- 1 T. fresh thyme leaves, chopped
- 1+1/2 T. fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 T. garlic powder
- 2 T. sugar
- 1/2 t. salt
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt, garlic powder and herbs.
- 3/4 C. water
- 3/4 C. chicken broth or stock
- 1/4 C. butter
- 2 t. dried minced onion
In a small saucepan, heat the water, chicken broth, butter and minced onion to 120-130 degrees. Add wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour). When dough has fully risen, punch dough down and allow to rest for at least 15 minutes.
