Fantastic Focaccia Bread
January 28, 2007

I used my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook to do the kneading, and even so, it took quite a bit longer than 7 minutes to make the dough soft. I also added an Italian mix of spices as the mixer kneaded. Before putting it in the oven, I spread kosher salt on top of the olive oil. Interestingly my dough did not rise very much, even after the first rise, and I was concerned that it would be rock-like, but I saw another very similar recipe, which recommended the second rising be only 30 minutes, so I followed those directions since my bread didn't seem to be rising anyway. I am pleased to report, that in the end, the bread was quite tasty. I'll be making it again.
