Easy Focaccia Bread

You can make this into a pizza, dessert, or just the bread. It's easy and delicious! You just have to have the patience to let it sit for the 24 hours!! It's worth it I promise!


3 c. flour
1 2/3 c. warm water
2 T. sugar
1 ½ t. salt
¼ t. yeast

In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients together until flour is just moistened. Cover tightly and let sit out at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours. To bake, resist the temptation to stir and carefully pour out on to a greased cookie sheet. Drizzle about 2T. olive or other oil over the dough and spread dough with a rubber spatula to ¾ inch thickness. Let rise for 15-20 min.

Add simple herbs like rosemary or sage, with coarse salt. For dessert, drizzle with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar and bake. Then drizzle with frosting once it's cooled and done baking.

Bake at 450° for 20 to 25 min.
