How did you know I was baking today? I just put a pan of 8 mini banana walnut loaves in the oven.

Well, here is my first attempt. I think I added too much water. Didn't get the rise I expected. Tastes good, though. A bit too salty.

Looks good to me! Focaccia shouldn't be overly thick. In fact, I'd says yours looks downright plump.

ok. fair enough. The guy on the video made it look a lot easier. I had a hard time handling it. I can see why he uses so much oil. I would cut back on the salt or skip the salt on the top. Either way, it wasn't very hard and I will definitely do it again. Soon.

Looks almost perfect to me. Like they said, it's not supposed to be terribly thick.

How is the air pocket structure? Shouldn't they be bigger?
