Focaccia




2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour (or add one extra of regular flour if you don't have)
warm water
2 ts yeast
1 tbs honey
1 tbs salt
4 tbs olive oil

2-4 tbs olive oil
2 tbs dried rosemary
2 tbs dried basil
2 tbs dried thyme

Activate yeast in the water mixed with honey.
Mix the salt into the flour then add to the water.
Knead until satiny and smooth.
Let double covered for about one hour.
Gently deflate and let double again, however not necessary if in a hurry.
Dump the dough onto your cooking plate and stretch it carefully trying to maintain as much of the air as you can. Dimple with your fingers.
Let rise a third time for about 20 minutes or until the height you prefer.
Sprinkle herbs and drizzle olive oil if you like although this time I didn't.
As always dimple the bread and after the third rising. :-)
Bake 350 until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped.
Enjoy!
