Flower focaccia can bring out the artist in you. I have made focaccia many times, but felt like jumping on the new trend of making floral motifs on the bread. You can choose a lot of different things to make, but it's extra good with tomatoes, because they become naturally sweet during roasting. This recipe gives an airy and juicy bread.
300 g manitobamel (possibly wheat flour)
200 g type 00-honey
365 g water, finger warm
1 teaspoon dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
11 g salt
Knead all the ingredients well together. Cover it and set it to rise for min. 1 hour, preferably longer.
Place baking paper in a baking dish and pour the dough into it. Cover and set for new raising in min. 1 hour.
1 dl oil
Make pits in the dough with your fingers and pour oil over it. Make flowers from e.g. spring onions in strips, olives in slices and mini tomatoes. Sprinkle with herbs and salt and put quite far down in the oven at 200 degrees for about 25 minutes. Check if it is cooked through by tapping it with one finger. The sound must be hollow.
Let the bread cool down and serve with soups, with toppings in or as part of a tapas table.
