READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Gregg Schlau

This is Bill Hingley's recipe which we LOVE. Original recipe located at I recently bought a breadmaker. Although I LOVE to knead bread, I haven't had the time for, ohh...10 or so years to do it regularly. My two growing teens adore this focaccia bread recipe that I adapted from various sources.

Pleasant enough focaccia but I think I prefer those with no milk powder and less sugar. Just found these ingredients to be unnecessary.
