Brie focaccia

Hello, hello!

I have been extremely lazy when it comes to cooking these past few months, but I have been wanting to try this focaccia recepy for a really long time! Today that I had they day off I finally got to make it and after a lot of research online I found a good recepy that wasn't too complicated! ( click here )
When I was in Barcelona I tried this brie focaccia once and I must say that I fell in love right away!

Here is the recepy in English:
  • 3½ dl water
  • 25 gr fresh yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ dl olive oil
  • about 7 dl flour

  • basil
  • coarse sea salt
  • 200 gr brie cheese
  • rucola
  • olive oil
1. Melt the yeast in the heated water ( 37 ° C  temperature or better said body temperature heh)
2. Add the honey, oil and salt
3. Gradually add the flour and stir
4. Keep adding flour till the dough isn't too sticky anymore 
5. Cover it with a kitchen towel and place it in a warm spot to rise for 30-45 minutes

Dump your risen dough into the pan punching it down to deflate it. Let it rise under a kitchen towel for another 30 minutes.
Leave it in the oven for 10-15 minutes on 250 degrees
Bake until it's golden brown and oil it again ( yeah, you are going to need lot's of olive oil)
 Cut the brie in slices and put the focaccia again in the oven for about three minutes so that the brie melts a bit.
Add some fresh rucola on top and you are done!!
It actually turned out better than I thought! It was nice and soft and the basil worked well with the brie. I am definitely going to make this again but next time add some feta and tomatoes!
