Gluten-Free Vegan Focaccia
My mom, who was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease about 17 years ago and with Celiac Disease several months ago, asked me to bake her gluten-free focaccia bread. Never mind the fact that I rarely work with yeast, how could I refuse her request? I scoured the internet and came up with this recipe.
I don't suggest you try this recipe as it didn't work for me. My yeast was brand new, I proofed it properly, even taking the water's temperature, and it still didn't rise. It remained pretty doughy after the required baking time, too. Considering how expensive the ingredients were, I expected more, but I guess we can't win them all.
Despite all this, my mom loved it! I think I'll try again and see what happens.
