Apple and caramel focaccia

Method

For the focaccia

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the yeast, the sugar, the water, and whisk well.
  • Add the flour, the salt, the semolina, the olive oil, and beat with the hook attachment at medium speed, for 10-15 minutes. Ideally, you should set the mixture aside before beating it, for 5-10 minutes, to activate the yeast. The dough will come out quite sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it double in volume.  You can oil your hands to work with the dough.
  • Spread the olive oil into a 28x36 cm baking pan and transfer the dough in it. Make sure to spread it over the whole surface of the pan. Cover it with plastic wrap or with a dish towel and allow about 30 minutes for the dough to rise.

For the coating

  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (390ο F) set to fan.
  • Core the apple and cut it in half. Cut it into very thin slices and spread it over the whole surface of the dough.
  • Spread the almonds coarsely chopped, sprinkle with the sugar, and bake for 20-25 minutes.

For the caramel sauce

  • Place a frying pan over low heat.
  • At the same time, place a pot over medium heat. Add the heavy cream, the cinnamon, the vanilla extract, the salt, and let the mixture get hot.
  • Spread ¼ of the sugar into the pan. Once it melts, add another batch and let it melt. Follow the same process for the whole sugar. Once you add the last batch, mix with a silicone spatula until it has the color of caramel.
  • Transfer the hot heavy cream into the pan with the caramel and stir constantly with the silicone spatula, for 2-3 minutes over low heat, until the caramel completely melts and the ingredients are homogenized.
  • The texture of the caramel will be quite runny. If you want it thicker, you can boil it for another 2 minutes.
  • Pour it over the focaccia and serve.
