Using my trusty Breville ikon Baker’s Oven I made bread maker focaccia. I kept it plain and simple and used only olives for the topping.
Head straight on to the Recipe For Bread Maker Focaccia ♥
I decided that I would see if I could get a script app for my iPad. This works by writing as you would on paper. My iPad is of the older generation and the iPencil does not work on the screen. I eventually found one that I liked, albeit, the app seemed slow. The next step was to find a stylus pen that would work with the app, and the iPad. It sounds simple but was anything but. My first stop was the iStore but the stylus pens they had on offer did not have an ink pen option. And I wanted one with both so that I could write on ordinary paper when need be without having to have two pens in my bag. My shopping ended with a very expensive pen from a computer store that at least made replying to emails somewhat easier while we were away.

I was not one hundred percent happy with the pen and finally found something on-line that was a quarter of the price. I bought two of these pens and have found them such a pleasure to use. Not only on my iPad, but on the iPhone as well. My next step will be to find a faster reacting app. But that is something for when I have time. And time is not been something I have had much of lately. The day after we got back from overseas I felt like focaccia. But I did not have the patience to wait for my sourdough to do its magic. I opted for my much-loved and not much used bread maker. This bread maker focaccia did not need any of my attention for the most part. And resulted in a great tasting bread.

I LOVE Breville. I’ve had my trusty tea kettle for over 10 years and it’s working great. But I do not have a bread maker by them now I want to buy one.
I might not use mine often, but it is so worth having 🙂
I never would have thought to use the breadmaker for focaccia! What a great idea and it looks delicious!
Thanks Amy. I am doing a lot of quick breads at the moment 🙂
def going to try this one looks easy and yummy
Thanks Stephanie, and please let me know how it worked out 🙂
I don’t have a bread maker, Tandy, but I am hoping to get one for Christmas.
Hope Terence is reading this!
Ha ha, I will tell him what I want. Otherwise he buys me things I don’t want like jewelry.
haha, I would not mind a piece of jewellery every now and then 😉
Haven’t made focaccia for a while…a delicious, timely reminder!
One of my favourite breads to make 🙂
What type of pen did you end up getting that you liked Tandy? And focaccia is such a treat. How do you feel now that you’re back? Is there any jetlag?
Did you manage to find the stylus pen in Australia?
Glad you liked the pens, Tandy. I love focaccia but haven’t made it in a long while. Your recipe sounds so good. I will have to make it soon.
I have not made focaccia in so long! This looks fab. I don’t have a bread maker but I’ve always found Breville to be an excellent brand.
We love the brand 🙂
