Fig Focaccia #breadbakers
This dimpled Italian flat bread, with a yummy fig and sweet onion topping is perfectly crisp on the outside, yet soft and chewy in the middle.
When I saw the theme for this months Breadbakers , I knew exactly what I was going to make. I love that Wendy from A day in the life on the farm, picked Hearty Fall Breads.
I know I have been talking a lot about my friend Lisa and her fantastic 40 year old fig tree, but if it wasn’t for that tree, I would not have made this fig Focaccia. I think figs scream fall and what better way to enjoy a fresh fig then baked on top of a beautiful loaf of Focaccia bread?
