Welcome to the 12th HBinFive Bread Braid

by Michelle on May 31, 2010

When I first received my copy of “Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day”, I quickly scanned through the book and bookmarked interesting recipes and the Cherry Black Pepper Focaccia recipe was one of the first recipes I noted! And when the Cherry Black Pepper Focaccia finally came up on the HBinFive Schedule, I was very happy to make this bread!

The recipe is very easy to make being it’s a basic whole wheat focaccia with a topping of dried red cherries, wine, green onion and freshly ground black pepper and drizzled with olive oil. Of course being a Black Pepper lover, I got a wee bit carried away with the freshly ground black pepper! I had planned on making the focaccia and using it as a hamburger bun but just as I was about ready to pop the bread in the oven we had a power outage! Well our power did not return until about 7:00 so we had the Cherry Black Pepper Focaccia for dessert instead. LOL! This is a fabulously delicious bread and one I will certainly make again!

    Are you going to share the recipe? I would love a copy of it. It looks so unusual and deadly delish!

    I’m looking forward to seeing what other people post! I like to have a cup of coffee while I look at the other postings.

  • kat June 1, 2010 at 9:00 am

    I need to try this because my last try at cherry focaccia bread was a total fail

  • Susan June 1, 2010 at 9:07 am

    I loved the focaccia too but I switched mine up just a tad :)

  • Aparna June 1, 2010 at 10:18 am

    That focaccia does look good. Never tried cherries in bread and must do so.
    Haven’t seen you much at the forum so good to see your post. Hope you’re much better now. Take care.
    Btw, those cookie bracelets look gorgeous! :)

  • teresa June 1, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    it came out beautifully!

  • Old Pop June 1, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    Looks great, I should have added more pepper.

  • Jamie June 2, 2010 at 10:57 am

    I have the first Artisan Bread in 5 but now I want this book too! What a fabulous recipe! It looks so delicious. Really perfect focaccia but I love the cherries! Mmmm. On my to-buy list when I’m in the States!

  • Cristie June 4, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    Your focaccia looks very inviting. I adore cherries and will make this bread at some point. What a great attitude you had through your power outage– some may have lost hope and pitched the dough!

  • Danielle June 5, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    I wasn’t so sure about the black cherry focaccia bread but now you have me intrigued! It looks wonderful. I love how easy focaccia is. Bummer about the power outage…at least it all worked out well though :)

  • Chef Dennis June 5, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Hi Michelle

  • Sophie June 6, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    The pictures is beautiful!!!

  • katrina June 7, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    That looks delicious! I LOVE cherry anything, but especially in breads. Must try asap –

  • RJ Flamingo June 11, 2010 at 11:29 pm

    Hi! I’m back! Did you miss me? >sigh!< I suspect that few, if any of you, will see this, but I just had to jump back in with the Moon & Stars Bread and Cinnamon Raisin Bagels.

    Your focaccia looks simply outstanding, Michelle! I may have to try that one, too.

    I hope you're making progress and feeling better, love. xoxox

    Running a bit late but I am very pleased with the seed encrusted pita bread. I obtained a pizza stone today and baked the pita on that. I had problems getting a large pita bread onto the stone so I immediately made smaller ones. They puffed up enough for me but I am not sure if its how they should have turned out. They taste good.
