yeast foccacia with life of its own
Just trying to make some foccacia.
It seems as much as I knead it, it wants more flour! gave up and didn't knead it long enough, but left it to rise when it was holding all the flour and before it got sticky again. Any idea why it'd be like that? And , can I give it another knead after the first rise, leave it to proof again and then punch and shape?
Yeast activated fine - used two sachets (14g) of dried where the recipe called for 30g of fresh.
The recipe was:
2 1/2 cups warm water with 30g fresh yeast
5 cups strong flour
1 clove garlic
pinch of salt
I ended up using 1/4c coconut oil, as I forgot to put rest in! I plan to brush it on top.
