Sweet grape Focaccia

Focaccia dolce all'uva

Harvest Time, sweet focaccia time grapes, between sweet and salty, healthy and easy to prepare. Focaccia, or crushed, Grape is a delicacy that comes from rural tradition: originally prepared with wine grapes during the vintage time, but you can do it with table grapes or even, If you like (I do!) with the Concord grapes. The only slight drawback is that this traditional flat bread is prepared with whole grapes, and then the stones you feel when you bite. If you prefer, you can cut every bean in half and remove stones.

Focaccia with grapes

To prepare the sweet focaccia grapes with yeast: dissolve the yeast in the warm water (not hot, I recommend, otherwise kill the yeast!), then pour the mixture into a large bowl. Add the extra virgin olive oil, sugar, the flour and the salt and mix, first into the bowl and then on the work plan, until the mixture is smooth and elastic. Place dough in an oiled Bowl, cover with a cotton cloth dampened with warm water and leave to rise for one hour at room temperature.

To prepare the sweet focaccia all'uova with yeast followed the same procedure, dissolving the yeast first in water and then combining and mixing the ingredients. In this case, the first leavening will last until doubling of the volume of the dough, approximately three hours, constant temperature around 30°.

Meanwhile, detach the grapes from the stems and wash it well. Dry it carefully.

Spent time, your dough will be more than doubled in volume. Divide it into two parts (one slightly larger than the other) and cut two disks. Lightly oil a shallow baking pan (tart type) and cover it with the disc more often, then top two-thirds of the grapes and sprinkle with plenty of granulated sugar. Place over the second disk of dough. Cover again with the damp cloth and let rise for another hour for the brewer's yeast, and again until doubling for the sourdough, about another two to three hours always at constant temperature around 30°.

Preheat the oven at 200 degrees.

When the sweet focaccia grapes will be high and well risen, grease the surface with extra virgin olive oil and prick with a fork. Decorate with grapes and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 45 minutes or until the surface is golden. Serve the sweet raisin cake warm or cold. Bon appétit!
