Whole Wheat Garlic Focaccia Recipe
Focaccia is in my totry list since a longtime.Lavi always insisted me to try Focaccia from the day I bought an oven.I was somehow not comfortable trying breads when I first started baking.Now that I've tamed the yeast, its a breeze to bake breads and I enjoy baking them.One fine weekend morning I tried this focaccia bread for breakfast and it was perfect with soups.But I loved to have it as such itself, it had a crusty top with a soft bread texture inside.

This is perfect with a mild soup or you can have it with some cheese spread if you have it as such.I made it with 100% whole wheat flour and I didn't miss white flour at all as the taste and texture was great.
