Focaccia bread seemed daunting to make. Maybe it was the fact that the focaccia bread recipe called for rolling the dough (I couldn’t just stuff the focaccia dough into a pan and call it done), or maybe it was the focaccia bread’s many dimples (imagine each one hides an eyeball and try to sleep at night). My focaccia bread fears, however, were unfounded. Focaccia bread, I learned, is easier to make than many other breads and it is fast to prepare (well, fast for bread). Because it’s not a tall bread, it only needs to rise for thirty minutes.
Once the focaccia bread is complete, you can eat it plain or treat it like a pizza – top it with your favorite toppings and bake for a few minutes. I topped mine with fig spread, grilled onions, and goat cheese (there’s a huge hint in this sentence about my next cupcake flavor and the Flavor Bible contest winner).
