This Sweet Focaccia studded with dried fruit makes for a delicious tea time snack.
We are starting a new week of Blogging marathon today and I picked a very interesting theme. Valli has asked us to make ‘Sweet flatbreads’ and I was intrigued by the idea of trying some delicious flatbreads that are sweet instead of savory (like this no fuss focaccia or this rosemary focaccia). So for the first day I made this Sweet Focaccia with dried cherries and raisins.The first place I go when I am looking for any flour based recipes is King Arthur flour. If you follow my blog you already know that I am a big fan of their site and their products. I have had 95~100% success rate with their recipes. Today’s sweet focaccia also comes from King Arthur flour site.I have seen a few focaccia recipes that fall into the sweet category, but I never thought I would be making it myself. For some reason, I cannot imagine sweet versions of some dishes (like desserts with potatoes). I am sure they taste amazing, but I can’t get myself to make them.But this sweet focaccia is nothing but delicious. I made this last week when the schools were closed due to snow and the kids were driving me insane. The smell of this flatbread baking in the oven hushed them up for a little bit. Both of them loved the chewy focaccia and the plumped cherries and raisins.The best part of this recipe is that it is vegan, easy to make and absolutely yummy!! You can easily make this for a crowd — just double the ingredients and bake the sweet focaccia in 2 8″ round cake pans or 9″x13″ baking pan. This flatbread is great to eat warm with some tea (I’m in love Trader Joe’s Festive Black Tea). Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days — warm it up a little before serving.
