quick focaccia bread - video

 350g self-raising flour
 200ml warm water
 2-3 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
 1 tsp sea salt
 Fresh chopped herbs - e.g. rosemary, parsley , thyme
 Will need a little extra oil, salt and herbs for topping before baking

Preheat an oven to 190C


Sieve flour into large bowl


Add chopped herbs and salt


Pour in the warm water


Add the 2 - 3 tbsp of oil


Mix with your hands to form a soft dough - adding a little more water as necessary


Knead together - you may need to add more flour or water depending on the consistency. You are looking for something that doesn't stick to your fingers but also isn't too dry


Put a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray and place dough on top - pulling into a round shape (see video for demonstration)


Poke finger into top of bread to create indentations


Brush a little oil on the top, sprinkle some herbs and a little salt


Place in the oven and bake for around 30 minutes - checking it regularly.
