Wild Yeast Sourdough Focaccia with Olives and Rosemary (vegan)

March 23, 2018




I'm going through a [forever] bread phase.

There is something really special about bread making.

I'm sure I've had a lot of past lives and one of them consisted of being a baker.


It takes patience. It's the opposite of our on-the-go, convenience driven world.

Do you want fresh bread for dinner? Well, I hope you started the process yesterday!

But the care you put into your loaf makes it all worth it.


I'm still new to all of this baking stuff, so I'm all up in Pinterest

to help me get the rhythm and flow of sourdough.

I used, Flour on my Face - Sourdough Focaccia recipe as a guide to help me learn!



Here is her ingredient list:


in a bowl, combine the following ingredients to form a sponge:
  • 1-1/2 cups sourdough starter (always feed your starter the day before you are going to bake and stir before measuring)

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon honey [I used maple syrup!]

  • 1 cup flour

allow sponge to ferment and bubble for about an hour until bubbles of differing size are on top.
  • Add to sponge:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 4 cups flour

  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt


Click here for the procedure! 




Bloom Recipe Notes:


  • First of all I halved the recipe! I'm the only one eating this bread and I do not need 2 loaves of deliciouness in my kitchen.

  • I substituted maple syrup instead of honey

  • My 'sponge' didn't get super bubbly like the recipe calls for but I went with it anyway and it still turned out!

  • I probably could have baked it for an extra 5 minutes.

  • Next time, I will mix the fresh rosemary and chopped olives into the dough for extra flavor.



  • Fresh Garden Rosemary

  • Green Olives

  • Kalamata Olives

  • Flaked Sea Salt

  • Cloves of Garlic

I added these ingredients right before I put the dough in the oven!
