I love focaccia, but have never made it myself. When I heard of sweet focaccia, I decided I had to try it myself. It’s a thin, sweet focaccia topped with fruit. Currently fresh in my yard are peaches and apples. So, I made a ginger peach and a cinnamon apple focaccia.
For the bread itself, I used the sweet focaccia recipe from the cookbook Focaccia by Carol Field.
For the apple topping:
4 cups chopped apples per 12″ focaccia round
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp olive oil (enough to brush the edges of the bread)
To assemble – spread apples over dough. Be sure to drizzle any remaining liquid over the apples. After you pull it from the oven, brush edges of bread with olive oil.
For the peach topping:
1 C sliced peaches per 12″ focaccia round
a sprinkle of nutmeg
a sprinkle of ginger
1/8 – 1/4 cup sugar (depending on sweetness of your peaches)
2 tablespoons olive oil
To assemble – brush olive oil over dough. Place peaches in a spiral on dough. Sprinkle nutmeg, ginger, and sugar over top. Once you pull the bread from the oven, brush olive oil over edges of bread.
I completely forgot about my blog post for the Vegan Food Swap last month and I’m two days late.
I got an absolutely wonderful box from Stacy at Stacy’s Adventures in Wonderland. It was apple-themed in honor of Michigan’s orchard season. I love apples!
The box included apple chips, a container of apple oatmeal, apple granola, apple spice tea, two apple pie Larabars, and a mint chocolate Endangered Species chocolate bar. I’m in apple-heaven. Thank you, Stacy!
