Bread Bible Focaccia Catastrophe

David A. | May 31, 2005 10:31 AM

I have tried to make the focaccia recipe from Rose Levy Berenbaum's "Bread Bible" three times: the first time it worked nicely, the latter two times it was a complete catastrophe, despite the fact that I followed the recipe exactly in all three cases, as far as I know. The proofed dough was light and bubbly and great-looking but when I put it into the oven it became a dessicated, greasy cracker, as if the air were somehow sucked out of it. Has anyone had any luck with this recipe, or, alternately, does anyone know of a great, foolproof focaccia recipe?
