Focaccia for One

Cooking for one is hard enough but then baking? That can be impossible! I lived on my own for years and wish I had more resources available. So in writing recipes, I’m going to work on more to feed one or two.


This afternoon I tested this one. Since it’s made in the microwave and does not contain yeast like traditional focaccia, it’s pretty dense.

Focaccia for One
Serves 1

1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning Mix
3 ounces milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Spray the Microwave Pasta Cooker with oil and spread with the Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush.
  2. In the Cooker, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and Italian Seasoning Mix.  Add the milk and oil and stir to combine.
  3. Place the cover on the Cooker and microwave on HIGH 2 minutes (microwaves vary and so will baking time so start watching it after 90 seconds).
  4. Remove from the microwave and let rest 1 minute.
  5. Sprinkle with the parmesan and place in a toaster oven 2 minutes to crisp the top and melt the cheese.
