Super soft mini focaccias that I prepared for a dinner with the family, they melt in the mouth and they are delicious both alone or filled with whatever or spreaded with cheese… with the remaining dough I prepared some soft bread sticks that everybody loved just as much as the mini focaccias.
Time of preparation
about 3 hours and a half in total
more or less 10 focaccias
What did I use
a silicon brush, sheets of oven paper, baking trays, plastic wrap, a first-course dish, a pastry board, a large bowl, a rag
250 ml of water
14 gr of dry yeast
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of salt
100 gr of extra virgin olive oil
400 gr of 00 flour
200 gr of Manitoba flour
How did I do
I put milk, water and sugar in the pot and I reheated at slow fire, mixing until the sugar is melted. I turned off the fire and added the yeast, mixing until it is melted.
In the bowl, I mixed the two flours and salt. I added the mixture of milk, water, sugar and yeast and finally I put the oil in it.
I well kneaded with the hands for a dozen of minutes and I let it grow with the wrap and the rag until it doubled (it took about 1 hour).
I took again the dough, I stretched it without pressing too much with the rolling pin on the pastry board slightly flouered.
With the plate I cut the mini focaccias and I put it on the baking trays covered with oven paper, not too near one to each other. With the remaining stripes of dough, I stretched them and I slightly flattened them with my hands, then I turned them to form rolled bread sticks and I put them on the baking tray between the mini focaccias.
I covered with the wrap and I let them grow for one hour more / one hour and a half.
I turned on the oven at 175°C and when it was hot I cooked for about 20 minutes, until the focaccias started to brown on the surface.
I turned off the oven and until they were still hot I spreaded some water with the silicon brush on the surface of them( also on the bread sticks).
I waited for them to cool and I served with cold cuts, pickles, cheese and fresh/cooked vegetables. Also lukewarm, especially the bread sticks, they are delicious!
