My Mum is the person that bakes focaccia in our house, she bakes different kinds of focacciaâ€¦ Onion focaccia, garlic and olives focaccia, rosemary focaccia, herb and tomato focaccia, eggplant and cheese focaccia, cherry almond focaccia, lemon focaccia, honey and berries focaccia, and of course strawberry focaccia. All of these are FANTASTIC, same recipe for all but different toppings! YUM!
This recipe is very simple, requires a little bit of kneading but it is super easy and it won’t take long for you to prepare. I guarantee that you will absolutely love it, we have been baking focaccias all the time last week! And you do not have to tell anybody how easy this was, OR you could brag about it! 😉
