bdizzle 2y agoThere's a difference of opinion about this recipe in my house. I thought the boxed spices made it taste a little strange and it was not my favorite. However, my honey loved this bread and has requested I make it again. When I do I am going to use fresh spices to see if that helps and will post another review!
bdizzle 2y agoI made this bread a few weeks ago. It turned out very moist and was a hit with some members of my household. For my part however I was disappointed. I think my problem was just that the bread tasted like all of its flavor came out of a spice bar and lacked a freshness. I think this could easily be correctly with fresh spices instead of jarred and plan to try it again at some point. I would reduce the spices by half if I used the jar spices in the future.

clanlaing 3y agoI've never made bread without a machine. This is easy, smells amazing, and is sooooooooo good. I want to make it all the time!! Go make some NOW.
cjsgerard 3y agoFirst time to make Focaccia. It's pretty much foolproof. My herbs must be very strong because they were overpowering. Will definitely try again, tinkering with the herb mix.
cjmurtaugh 3y agoThis is a great recipe! One of the few bread recipes that had the proportions correct, I didn't have to add any additional water or flour. Will definitely come back to this recipe again and again as my base recipe for focaccia and alter the spices. Thanks for sharing!
Theseehawks 3y agoKnead dough for 10 minutes in an electric mixer and let rise till double. Delicious.

brettnleosmom 4y agoThis bread is good. It wasn't as springy as I'd imagined it would be. It also makes your house smell like an Italian bakery when it's in the oven. :)
