You can do this. I promise. Even if you don't think you are too baker. It is a golden blush focused with a fine twist of Meyer lemon, full of black olives, and a shower of sliced almonds. The dough is a herb peel with a generous boost of hemp seeds, and a percentage of rye flour, if you happen to have a few hands. It's the same one I posted on my Instagram feed, and it's the focaccia recipe you need!
The shot above is what the focaccia looks like before baking. I used a cast iron baking tin, but (!) You can make the hob free (just mold it into a standard baking sheet). A third option is a cast iron teapot. I searched for the latest version I made in a 9-inch cast iron pot. Experiment and have fun with it!
I've been through a bit of a focaccia bender lately when I did Nigel Slater's New Year's Cranberry Focaccia (from Christmas Time). I forgot how simple and satisfying it is to make, and all the different ways you can overcome it based on what you have around the kitchen. You can customize the recipe with all sorts of alternative fillings! Have fun experimenting.
Choosing the right pastry:
This recipe requires instant dough and includes a shot of the exact dough I used for reference below. You can add it directly to the dough. Different from active dry yeast.
If you do, or a riff on it, tagged on Instagram (heidijswanson) so I can see :)!
