Garlic Rosemary Focaccia for the Bread Machine

READY IN: 2hrs 24mins
Recipe by danlynclark

This is my favourite breadmachine recipe. It is so moist and flavourful. Although it is not a high rising bread, it makes great flat italian sandwiches. It is also good warm, served with butter and soup. You can use all white flour if desired, but for best results, follow the recipe. Prep time includes machine's time (your machine may vary)

Top Review by Smarahcakes

Absolutely fantastic! I made this yesterday and it was great. I loved it, my husband loved it and my friend loved it. I also didn't have any milk so I too used 1/4 cup milk and 1 cup water (wish I had read the review that had done that before me :P) I eyeballed the herbs and the honey but it turned out fine. I also served it w/ a balsamic/oil dip from all recipes and some fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. I'm looking forward to what's left over for lunch!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crush two of the garlic cloves and place it in your breadmachine pan along with the flours, milk, salt, water, 3 tbsp.
  2. Olive oil, honey, and yeast (according to your machine's instructions, some call for liquid ingredients first, other call for dry first) Place the bread pan inside the machine and close the lid.
  3. (I add some of the basil and rosemary at this point as well) Program bread maker for the whole wheat dough mode Turn dough onto floured surface (it is quite sticky, don't add more flour) Divide dough into two pieces and cover and let rest 10 minutes+.
  4. Crush the remaining garlic.
  5. In a small bowl combine garlic with herbs and remaining 1/4 cup oil.
  6. Add salt if desired.
  7. Oil two round cake pans.
  8. Place in dough.
  9. Brush dough with garlic oil.
