It turns out that sourdough focaccia is my new favourite go-to bread to make!
Bread flour 450g
Water 350g (around 40C)
Place all ingredients except the salt into the bowl.
Mix well until all the ingredients are well incorporated, cover and leave for 30mins to autolyse.
Next add the salt and a tablespoon of water, work this well into the dough and then cover and leave for 3-4hrs folding every hour. Once ready the dough should feel nice and pillow and increased in volume by a third.
Tip out on to a lightly floured work surface and shape into a round.
Place into a floured basket and leave out for 1 hour before placing in the fridge overnight.
Preheat the oven and casserole pan to 250C.
Flip the loaf out of the basket on to some parchment and slash.
Lift the loaf on the parchment paper into your hot casserole pot and place in the oven with the lid on for 30 mins.
Remove the lid and continue to bake for 15-20mins until you get the desired colour.
Place on a wire rack to cool for at least an hour.
