Peach Focaccia

A light and chewy bread, topped with cinnamon sugar and fresh peaches. Only slightly-sweet, it can be enjoyed any time of day, and not just for dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water (237 ml)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 cups bread flour (240-360 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar , divided
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon active dry yeast (1 package, 7 grams)
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon , divided
  • 2-3 medium peaches , sliced
  • Additional olive oil , for brushing

Instructions

  • Heat the water and olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat until it just comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes, or until temperature is 120-130°F.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment, combine 1 cup of the bread flour with the salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, yeast, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Add the water mixture and mix until it forms a wet dough, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
  • Add the remaining bread flour ¼ cup at a time while mixing until dough clears the bowl and is tacky but doesn't stick to your fingers when touched. Knead for 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place bowl in a greased bowl and turn to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch down dough and knead a few times to remove air bubbles. Shape dough into a rough 14 inch circle on a sheet pan (alternately, shape into 3-4 smaller loaves as pictured in this post), cover, and let rise for an additional 15 minutes. Use your fingers to dimple the dough, pressing your fingers all the way down.
  • Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Brush the bread with olive oil and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Top with peach slices.
  • Bake at 375°F until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
  • Focaccia is best consumed the day it is made, but will keep well wrapped at room temperature for a few days.
