    Chez Desirée's Note:

    This is from "Quick & Simple" by James Barber and it sure is! I usually make it in a round pie tin, not the baking sheet he recommends. I don't add the black olives because I don't care for them. This was titled as just a focaccia but after PAC with Dwynnie reviewing my recipe she mentioned that it has a bit of a biscut type texture so we came up with a new name. Enjoy!

      This was a good, very easy, quick bread with a bowl of soup! It has more of a biscuit-like texture than some focaccia (as there is no yeast) and wonderful flavor! A keeper! Thank you!

      This is a great recipe for a first time focaccia attempt. Since that first attempt, I've made the recipe several times, each time bravely adding ingredients to the dough and sprinkling whatever I have on hand on the top. I've had good results with the addition of 1/3 cup of shredded cheese added to the dough. I've used left over buttermilk as the liquid. It is great w/ olives, thinly sliced onions, and rosemary on the top. And it is absolutely great w/ a glass of wine and a shallow bowl of olive oil to dip the bread once it is out of the oven Yum.
