Easy Focaccia Bread that you will simply LOVE. It comes together in minutes and gets baked up with crispy edges thanks to your favorite cast iron skillet!
When it comes to making bread often people find it to be an intimidating process. I can honestly say that in the not-so-distant past, I could include myself in that group. There were plenty of times I failed at making a fresh loaf of bread and I shivered at the thought of tackling another bread project for fear of yet another flat loaf. But when it comes right down to it, making a successful loaf of bread is a matter of a little bit of practice.
Today I have for you this easy focaccia bread baked up in a skillet - it requires no practice, no stress, almost no kneading and the best part of all? Much like making a loaf of crusty no-knead bread, you cannot mess this up.
Making focaccia is easy! This focaccia recipe is made in a cast iron skillet which leads to a light, flaky bread that’s crisp on the bottom. It’s buttery and seasoned with herbs that make it so flavorful.
I love bread recipes that allow me to be creative and inventive. This focaccia is one of those recipes. Right before baking, the dough is brushed with melted butter then let your creative juices flow and sprinkle on whatever strikes your fancy. Any variety of grated cheese or herbs will work. How about Romano cheese, rosemary and lemon zest? Sprinkle on crushed red pepper flakes for a beautiful spicy version.
The flavor possibilities are endless! For this version I mixed together freshly grated parmesan, minced garlic, and spices like oregano, basil, thyme, marjoram, rosemary and paprika. Once baked to golden perfection, you have a fragrant loaf of focaccia bread perfect for enjoying with a big plate of pasta and great for sopping up all that sauce.
This focaccia is light and flavorful and would also be great partnered with Lisa's Strawberry Spinach Salad, a perfect summer salad. This focaccia recipe is easy to make and ready in about an hour so you’ll surely be adding this bread recipe to your arsenal of go-to recipes.
