Focaccia – The Great British Bake Off Technical Challenge Recipe
This is the short version of the focaccia recipe that the bakers had to follow in the third episode of the Season 2 of the Great British Bake Off. As you may guess, this one is originally Paul’s recipe – the full recipe can be found here.
Some More Insights to the Challenge
The bakers have 3,5 hours to make a focaccia. This time, all the bakers had access to identical but “unmeasured” ingredients – so from the recipe below, I have left out how much of something is needed. If you plan to do this challenge, it would probably help if someone else checks the full recipe and sets up the ingredients for you.
We don’t see the recipe at all this time, but a few of the bakers do read some lines out loud, so we get some idea about what is written there. We also learn that, as usual, no exact oven time has been specified.
P.S. I haven’t added any pictures of the expected result for these challenge posts on purpose. It will be a lot more fun if someone finds the challenge and doesn’t know what the end result has to look like! For the list of all Technical Challenge recipes I’ve added so far, go see this post here.
If you decide to do this challenge – good luck! Don’t forget to share some pictures of your end result with me afterwards!
