The BEST focaccia EVER

I’ve been making this recipe for well over 4 years , it was one of the very first bread recipes I tried and and it’s absolutely my most favourite focaccia recipe.  My version is not your traditional focaccia, instead it’s a lot deeper and has a really soft texture. Trust me the taste is fantastic.

Have a go and see what you think – personally I thought they were super yummy and great with a grilled chicken breast and some salad.
