If you are in the mood of something sweet but not really too sweet, this orange and cranberry sweet focaccia is THE thing to make!
I love breads, they are my guilty pleasures. The savory ones to be had with soups and salads, with curries and eggs, the sweet ones to be had with teas and more. I can live on bread and if you want to torture me, the one thing you can take away from me, is bread. They are also one of my favorite things to bake, the kneading, the aromas. Sigh! everything feels all right when there is bread around.
Sweet Focaccias, though not very common, are a delightfully surprisingly tea time treat or light desserts at the end of a hearty meal. Mildly sweet, they are very common in Italy and can be a star of your party table this holiday season.
Focaccia basically have an Italian origin and just like the pizzas, have such varied toppings on them. You can make them savory with a hint of olive oil, cheese and oregano, or just slightly sweet with some berries on top, like this recipe of mine! The biggest appeal for focaccia is that the dough is relatively easy to make. Less kneading and cooks much faster 🙂 When I was reading up about Focaccia, I realised that each part of Italy boasts of a special kind of Focaccia. While the basic recipe remains the same, the toppings do vary significantly. The sweet Focaccia is known to be common in the northern part of Italy.
Make this sweet Focaccia today and enjoy the smell of the freshly baked goodies wafting throughout your house 🙂
