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
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.
