How to make Eggless Herbed Focaccia Bread Recipe
To prepare Eggless Focaccia Bread, get prep with all the ingredients. First take hot milk and add sugar to dissolve completely. Also, grease your Baking tray.
When the milk and sugar mixture reduces to lukewarm temperature, add yeast and mix well. Keep aside for at least 10 minutes so that the yeast is proven.

Knead to make a medium tight dough.
Roll the dough to one-inch thickness. Cut the dough according to the size of your baking tray.
Place the rolled dough on the greased baking tray and leave it to prove for at least 2 hours.
Meanwhile, to prepare topping, heat the oil and sauté the chopped green and fresh herbs in it for about half a minute and keep the mixture aside.
Once the bread is proven for 2 hours and almost double size, preheat Oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
Make depressions using the forefinger all over the bread about 1 inch apart.
