Foccacia with 4-grain flakes

2,5 uur
4-Cereal flakes

Procedure

1

Soak the 4-grain flakes in water for 30 minutes. Drain, and leave to stand in a sieve.

2

Place 100g flour, the yeast, sugar, Italian herbs and the crushed clove of garlic in a bowl. Mix in 150ml of lukewarm water, cover, put the bowl in a warm place, and leave the mixture to rise for 30 minutes.

3

Mix the rest of the flour, the olive oil and salt through the dough and knead everything thoroughly. Add enough water to create a supple dough. Knead for another 3 minutes. Leave the dough to rise for another 20 minutes.

4

Knead the dough again, divide it into 2 portions, and shape into 2 flat loaves. Place these on a baking tray, cover with a tea towel, and leave to rise for another 30 minutes.

5

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C for a fan oven). Place the loaves in the oven for 25 minutes, until they are golden brown and done. Brush the tops with a little oil. Cut the focaccia into strips and serve with butter or tapenade.
