Sourdough focaccia

recette de focaccia au levain

1 an que je n’avais pas fais de focaccia, et je peux vous dire que pour un focaccia lover comme Monsieur, 1 an c’est quand même long ! More, il a vite été récompensé avec cette recette de focaccia au levain, qui je dois dire a comblée toutes nos attentes. Une focaccia épaisse et moelleuse à souhait qui sera parfaite pour les longues soirées en ce mois d’août, mais ça marche aussi aux autres saisons !

Pour moi la focaccia, c’est carrément un petit plaisir d’été,

c’est le pain des vacances, du soleil, aperitif by the sea and the small glass of rosé that goes with it (in moderation of course) ! Then, I give you the basics of the recipe but you can just as well make it your own, and decorate it with everything that comes to hand (finally everything that goes well together huh, don't mix melon and potatoes for example !). Bon, like i'm a nice girl (self-compliment that does no harm), I give you other focaccia recipe ideas, as zucchini and pesto, the one with green asparagus, the one with blueberries and rosemary and also a version with figs. A little thought for those who are not equipped with a robot : good kneading (at least tell yourself that it makes your arms !) !

Serve warm or out of the oven (it's even better), with why not a good one watermelon summer salad or a watermelon gazpacho (yes I am very "watermelon" at the moment !) ! Come on I leave you with the recipe.

      Awesome, @merciiiii 😉

      • Marie

        Bonjour, I think there is a big problem with your proportions, it seems impossible to me to have a ball of dough with so many wet ingredients …

        • Emilie


          the proportions are right, This corresponds to a humidity level of 75%.
          If you want to have a nice ball, you can lower the TH.

    Your recipe inspires me
    Can you tell me how and how long you keep this focaccia ?
    Thanks in advance

    • Emilie

      Hello Anne, the focaccia can be kept cool for 48 hours and to reheat it you must heat the oven to 200° then turn it off and put the focaccia in the oven 10 minutes 🙂

  • Pascale
