This is the #31 bake for The Home Bakers(THB) event ,this month . This recipe is selected by our organizer & baking buddy , Joyce of Kitchen Flavours . We're baking every single recipe from Lou Seibert Pappas's coobook - Coffee Cake . Joyce has baked this focacia beautifully shaped even better than the picture in the cookbook . Being a huge fan of focacia , I was really looking forward for this bake as I'm intrigued by the shape of this focacia too ! Sounds silly is it ?!! LOL Thanks to Joyce for step by step tutorial pictures on how to shape it . PHEW! That really save the day ! LOL For full recipe & tutorial HERE . For more this delicious focacia from all the members of THB HERE I've made the full recipe & added only 1 cup of room temperature water but still the dough turned to be sticky & difficult to handle even with 4 full cups of bread flour . Finally I've managed to shape it with some olive oil & by 2nd proofing time, it turned out great . I've added more olive oil on the forcacia that it calles after baking , just to give it a more shiny look. I'm quite happy with the end result , looks o;kay ( even the shape was not that even ) & taste delicious . My family enjoy this focacia very much . This is another keeper recipe which I'm certainly making again .
