Easy rosemary focaccia - enjoy

Who wants to bake focaccia bread, but thinks it might be difficult? I see you… that’s why I decided to share this easy rosemary focaccia recipe!

If you are following me, you should know that I have already published a focaccia recipe, including some history about this versatile food and the many kinds of it.

This time, I want to make it super easy, even if always tasty and satisfactory for your family and friends.

Three things, strictly connected, differentiate this focaccia from the previous one:

  • the yeast – here I use a dried beer yeast, not my homemade sourdough;
  • the rising – due to the different yeast, timing is really short, just 2.5 – 3 hours;
  • the mixing – here it is very quick and with just a spoon. The magic will happen during the leavening 🙂

Try this recipe, and if you like it, you can PIN IT! 🙂

Oh, I was almost forgetting. This time I had an assistant, my sous-chef, aka my daughter 🙂 Maybe that is the reason this easy rosemary focaccia came out that good!
