Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • Baking tray

Ingredients
  

  • 500 grams flour (strong bread flour)
  • 7 grams yeast (fast action)
  • 4 tablespoon truffle oil
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tbsp rosemary
  • 400 ml water (warm)
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Instructions
 

  • Weigh out your flour and put it into a mixing bowl. Add the yeast and mix thoroughly, before adding the salt. Don't add the salt straight away as it can kill the yeast.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add two tablespoons of the truffle oil to it, before slowly adding the water whilst stirring.
  • When the dough comes together into one lump turn it out onto a floured surface.
  • Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes until it is soft, smooth and not sticky. 
  • Place the dough into a separate, clean bowl and cover it with a tea towel before leaving it to rise in a warm place. 
  • After around 30 minutes it should have doubled in size. Meanwhile, get a deep baking tray and smother it with olive oil. 
  • Now take it out of the bowl (it might stick to the edges but that's fine, just scoop it all out) and put it into the well-oiled baking tray.
  • Using your hands, press the dough into a flat shape right into the sides and corners of the tray. It will attempt to spring back, so be firm and eventually, it will listen. 
  • Now pour over more truffle oil and smooth over the entire surface. Scatter over sprigs of rosemary and more salt.
  • Cover with a tea towel again and leave to prove for a further 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 210 C / 410 F.
  • Bake the focaccia in the oven for 20 minutes until the top is golden brown with a slight crunch and the centre is fluffy and moist. 
  • Take it out of the oven and drizzle over more olive or truffle oil (or use a spray to get good distribution) and sprinkle over more salt, before slicing it up and serving still warm from the oven. Yum.
