Grape & Rosemary Focaccia Recipe
1 tsp caster sugar
2 tsp (1 sachet/7g) dried yeast
3 cups plain flour
1 tbsp sea salt flakes
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup red grapes
2 sprigs rosemary, leaves only
Combine 1¼ cups of warm water, sugar and yeast in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until frothy.
Combine flour and 1 teaspoon of salt in a large bowl. Add yeast mixture with half the oil. Stir to combine, then use hands to bring dough together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, knead for 10 minutes or until elastic. Place into a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 220°C. Grease a baking tray. Knock back dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 minutes until smooth. Use a rolling pin to roll to a 25cm x 30cm rectangle. Place on prepared tray. Press grapes into dough. Cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm, draught-free area for 30 minutes to rise.
Drizzle with remaining oil. Sprinkle with remaining salt and rosemary. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven to 180°C. Bake for a further 10-15 minutes or until loaf is golden and sounds hollow when tapped.
