Focaccia using the KISS method of mixing
« on: October 08, 2014, 09:46:02 AM »
I quickly mixed a focaccia dough Monday evening using the KISS method.  I did not mix enough of dough for the size pan I used though.  I did find out my deck oven can bake focaccia though if baked on screens at my normal baking temperatures.  I will have to try a different pan next week.

Jonas,

Thanks.  It might look better if the TF is upped.

Mark,

You never heard of the KISS method?  "Keep it simple, stupid"  :-D  I used my Kitchen Aid mixer and only used the paddle attachment.  Put the oil into the water and just dumped the other ingredients into the mixer bowl.  Mixed with the paddle attachment until everything was incorporated, then let it sit for about 2 minutes.  Mixed with the paddle attachment again and mixed the heck out of it until the dough was not really sticky.

Norma, yes I have heard of KISS,  just thought in this case it was something special.

Mark,

Nothing special.  I really wanted to see if focaccia could be made in my deck oven at higher temperatures.

Thanks Deb! Yes, that was grapes, brown sugar and rosemary.

What I was attempting to do at market was what RamirOk did at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=16883.msg164507#msg164507 and I tried at Reply 28 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=16883.msg165569#msg165569 .  Peter figured out the formulation at Reply 23 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=16883.msg165344#msg165344  I upped the hydration and the salt this time.  I used the bleached and bromated Occident flour for the attempt I made for market.  I still have that same pan at home so I might try that one the next time.
