Homemade bread from heaven, easy recipe with a mouth-watering end result.

Ciabatta ingredients

serves 1
  • 350g bread flour BL80
  • 25g fresh yeast
  • 3ek olive oil
  • 1tk sugar
  • 1.5tk salt
  • 250ml water (mild)
  • olives, sun-dried tomatoes

Instructions

Step 1

Put in the mild water the sugar, crumble in it the yeast and let it sit for around 15minuts.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix the flour and the salt, and slowly add the water with the yeast. First mix with a spoon, and later start working them with hand.

Step 3

When the dough started to stick to the bowl, add the olive oil, and work everything together with hand.

Step 4

At this point, if you'd like, add the olives or the sun-dried tomatoes.

Step 5

Cover it up, grease the top with some olive oil (so it won't dry out) and leave in a hot place until it doubles in size (around 1h).

Step 6

When ready, pour the dough on a cooking sheet, and twist it, so it gets that recognizable ciabatta shape.

Step 7

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees, and pour some water in the bottom plate. The bread need to be baked in steam.

Step 8

When the oven has heated up and steamed, put the heat to 230 degrees. Then put in the dough and bake it for 20-25 minutes.
