Fig and gorgonzola focaccia

By September 15, 2018 , , ,

Figs and blue cheese are a great combination. I like to make focaccia style breads as they only require one prove, so no waiting around for a second prove before you put it on to bake. I also love the flavour and texture of the bread. This bread pairs really well with sliced parma ham and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic.

450g strong white bread flour or '00' flour
7g instant yeast
5g salt
300ml water
100g gorgonzola dolce chopped into small cubes
4 figs finely chopped

Add the flour, salt and yeast into a bowl
Mix together to combine and add the water to form a wet dough
Knead for 5 minutes until the dough becomes smooth
Flatten the dough and sprinkle in the figs and cheese, fold the dough over a few times to incorporate the fruit and cheese
Place in a deep baking tray and cover with oiled cling film and place in a warm place until the dough has risen to twice its volume (roughly 30-40 mins)
Remove the cling film and place in an oven at 190c (fan) 200c (normal) and bake for 40 minutes. 
Take the bread out of the tray and place back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes
Remove from the oven and allow to cool
If cooking on the BBQ use indirect heat, 200c (400f) or in a Kamado style BBQ use the plate setter with pizza stone on the griddle for 40 minutes
Tip: You can check if the bread is done by tapping the bottom and if it makes a hollow sound it is done
