Hi everyone

Here is a typically autumnal specialty that I never fail to make.  In my garden some years ago, I planted two plants of strawberry grapes, a type of dark purple grapes, very sweet and suitable for making desserts.  Even the birds are very fond of them.

 

FOCACCIA WITH STRAWBERRY GRAPES

Ingredients:

For the focaccia:

  • 500 gr. Flour type “0”
  • 300 gr. Water
  • 12 gr. Yeast
  • 100 gr. Brown sugar
  • A pinch of vanilla
  • 50 gr. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For the filling.

  • 500 gr. Individual strawberry grapes
  • 50 gr. Brown sugar

Procedure:

Knead the flour with the water and brewer’s yeast, add the sugar, vanilla and oil. Work everything for at least 10 minutes. Transfer the dough into a bowl and cover with film and let it rise for at least 2 hours.

After this time, work the dough very gently and spread it in a pan, preferably rectangular. Cover it with the grapes and brown sugar, let it rest for at least 15 minutes (will rise a little) and bake in the oven (with a pan of hot water on the rack below) for 15 minutes at 165°, then increase the temperature to 190° and cook for another 20 minutes at least.

Excellent for a snack with afternoon tea.
