Let's Make Focaccia Buns

These focaccia buns are a fantastic addition to soup meals or eaten on their own.

We paired the buns with How to make a Fish Risotto

Let's begin.

Step 1: Ingredients

For the Focaccia buns you will need:

  • 250 ml warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 450 g Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Tandaco yeast

For the (optional) topping you will:

  • Salt granules
  • Fresh Rosemary leaves
  • Olive oil

Step 2: Mix the Dry

Stir together the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.

Step 3: Stir in the Wet

Add the warm water and olive oil and using your hands mix it until it forms a soft dough.

Step 4: Knead That Dough!

After the dough ball has formed, tip it out onto a floured surface and knead well for about 10-15 minutes, until the dough is very smooth.

Step 5: Dough

Cut the dough into 9-10 pieces, then ball up and flatten each one until they are about 8 cm in diameter, and about 1 cm thick. Remember that they will double in height once risen.

Step 6: Rising

Leave the buns in a warm place until well risen and looking lovely.

Step 7: Over the Top

You will need:

-1 teaspoon of salt crystals

-1 sprig of fresh rosemary

-1 tablespoon of olive oil

Step 8: Holes and Rosemary

Once the buns have risen poke holes in them and lightly baste with olive oil. Place a few rosemary leaves onto each bun along with a little salt. Place salt sparingly as you don't want it too salty!

Step 9: Baking

Bake the buns in a 180C (360F) oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

We hope you enjoy these great buns.
