I'm a little behind on posting my July's ABC baking challenge results because I was away on vacation. But here it is, a roasted vegetable focaccia bread that truly was a challenge for me. Yeast-based foods tend to scare me a bit. Don't get me wrong, I love to eat them but making a homemade loaf of bread is a whole other matter. I've also been hit or miss with focaccia bread... a few times it came out perfectly and then other times it came out crispy... like this time.
I really followed the King Arthur Flour recipe, so I won't post the entire recipe here. Although I did do a slightly different topping with caramelized onions, roasted zucchini and parmesan cheese. Before I went to the beach, I caramelized 3 medium-sized onions with a dash of seasoned olive oil (similar to these). When I came back from the beach, I roasted 3 smallish zucchini's with more of the seasoned olive oil, salt and pepper. Immediately after the bread came out of the oven, I generously covered the top with shredded parmesan cheese. The combination of caramelized onions, roasted zucchini and parmesan cheese worked so well together that it turned this failed focaccia into a flatbread win.
Are there any recipes or food groups that are a challenge for you to cook/bake?
