rosemary focaccia (original recipe)

- 2.5 tbsp olive oil


10:00 pm - get all ingredients ready
10:05 pm - mix everything up with rafael
10.10 pm - knead the dough
10.15 pm - cover up the dough for first prove, and nurse rafael to sleep (yes, weaning not yet successful )
10.30 pm - rafael asleep, check mails and google reader
10.45 pm - check on first prove, put dough in baking tray and cover it up for second prove
11.15 pm - bake for 30 mins
11.45 pm - voila, bread ready for tomorrow!

looks like we could really do without a bread maker! :P

wow, thanks for sharing !!! Would try this afternoon !! what kind of dry yeast you use?

ps geeez, i am really getting bad in English... rather few vocabularies in such a short text :S

amy said...

aulina: you have bread making machine ma.... but sure go try when ssb is asleep or in the sling! :)

michelle: i used this "instant/active dry yeast" manufactured in hk.

hey hey, remember to leave the oven door ajar as jamie oliver said to allow air to go into the bread! :)

Since I moved to the current place, i haven't made any bread as there is no oven provided by landlord and there is no room to place an oven in the kitchen. I hope I can make bread with aidan very soon.

Ok, u really have lots of patience with Rafael in making bread, great job mom. By the way, are u thinking of quitting your job soon and open a bread shop with Rafael? that might work really well. Great job mom.

yoshi: oh a bakery! i wish! you have to help me convince mac! :P
