What are you most proud of? The spongy texture ... and the taste. For the the glaze, I used almond essence instead of a citrus / vanilla essence. I also used prunes, raisins and dried cranberries.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience. This was a 3 day project, but once I mixed all the ingredients and put in the baking pan in the fridge, it did not require my attention until 3 days later. Also be aware that on the final day before baking, that the unbaked focaccia has to rest outside the fridge for an additional 3 hours. I usually love to eat just out of the oven baked goods. Must admit that this focaccia was so much better cooled than when hot. As seen is the pictures above, the top picture was of the cooled focaccia, it formed perfect air spaces, while the bottom picture was of the hot - just out the oven focaccia which was dense.

I made this also and really enjoyed it. I baked mine in two cake pans so have the second in the freezer for later.
