Onion Focaccia Bread.

Onion Focaccia Bread. This is very easy and delicious bread I have ever made and it gets ready in no time. Its a great bread to serve with Soups, stews or pasta. You can season with any ingredients or herbs and serve hot with your favourite soup or pasta.



Ingredients.
1/2 cup warm water (100 degrees to 110 degrees)
3tbsp warm milk
1/4 tsp sugar 
1+1/8 tsp active dry yeast
1+1/2cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/4 tsp salt
6tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion (thinly slice)
1tbsp mixed Italian herbs
1/4 black oilves.



Baking Method.
Pour warm water and milk into a small bowl. Add sugar, and sprinkle in yeast. Using a fork, stir the mixture until yeast is dissolved. Let yeast stand until foamy, about 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, add flour and salt. Then add yeast mixture and 3tbsp oil. Mix until the dough comes together, adding more flour as needed until dough is smooth, Transfer to medium bowl with oil, and place the dough in the bowl, smooth side up. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, and place in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 1hour. Remove plastic wrap, and press your fist into the center of the dough to punch it down. Fold the dough back onto itself four or five times.
In a mean time pre-heat the oven to 180c for 10minutes.

Take a large baking tray and place the dough onto tray and shape the dough in to square shape. and use your fingers to make deep dimples in the focaccia, pushing them all the way through the dough to the bottom and sprinkle olives, onion and mixed herbs on top, apply the remaining oilve oil on top. and bake for 15 minutes at 180c.
Serve hot with soup, stew or pasta.
