Keto Foccacia

When i was teaching I used to dread the Bread part of the curriculum, everything took so long and there was never enough time to do it all in one lesson. The thing I used to dread most though was the naming bread lesson because when we came to Focaccia the boys would never say it correctly, I’ll leave it to your imagination how they said it.

This is quick and easy to make so can be done when those unexpected guests come around.
