When making bread there are plenty of times when I embrace the process. I love kneading bread, the feel of it as I work it with my hands. The waiting, I love the smell of bread proofing. Then there’s the baking of the bread. There are few things in life better than the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven - other than eating it, of course.
But there are plenty of times when I just don’t have the time to embrace that process because let’s be real, making bread can be quite time consuming. On days like those I tend to go for something a little faster like a savory quick bread. A loaf of Herbed Buttermilk Bread is the perfect addition to dinner. Filled with cheese and fresh herbs, it doesn’t take all day to make. One bowl, no fuss, no muss. Done. Other times it’s all about my Maple Bacon Skillet Cornbread. This cornbread recipe is a little smoky, a little sweet and oh so tasty. Dangerously delicious.
This Summer Focaccia Bread is a quick, easy bread recipe. This sweet spin on classic savory focaccia invites summer onto your plate. Golden and buttery outside. Fluffy and soft inside. But the very best part is that this focaccia bread is dotted with sweet, red cherries and slightly tart fresh apricots. A hearty sprinkle of coarse sugar adds a little sweetness and a pleasant little crunch too. This lightly sweet fruit bread is ideal for breakfast or for when your sweet tooth is calling and needs a little fix.
This bread is the perfect way to embrace summer’s fruit. Not a fan of cherries or apricots? Any stone fruit would be a beautiful addition to the top of this golden skillet focaccia. Let your creative juices flow and make this summer focaccia bread recipe soon!
