Flopaccia.

Well as I said this morning to Donyeokl I made his Focaccia, well a poor imitation of it anyway. Followed the recipe to the letter, but in reality it didn't have enough prooving, my kitchen was a bit cool this morning and I was too lazy to switch on my warm box. But then again it usually takes me 2 or 3 tries to get a recipe right.
One thing I do know, it tasted terrific, SWMBO and I ate the lot for lunch.

Hey Don, are you a sadist? Working with 40% hydration dough is bloody hard work.

Looks great Don, I shall have to persist with the 42%.

Hi Bill,

The sadist is at work again....

Bake this small loaf with my wholemeal starter wanting it to taste a little more sour...

This time, am more aggressive with the fingers topped with rosemary, black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

Maybe he got the hydration wrong? focaccia is usually a pretty high hydration dough especially since it doesn't even need to hold it's shape.
I love "Flopaccia" that it just great! Your Flopaccia looks terrific anyway minus the holiness. You are a terrific photographer, every bread you show looks like it's out of a magazine.
Have a great day Bill !

LOL!!! Flopaccia!

Looks delicious. Lunch already? Yikes! I've been here too long...going to make fish sandwiches with the pain de mie. Ta!


Wow.... what a name Bill, Flopaccia...!!!

Very Happy
