Simple, quick ciabatta
Ingredients
  • 70 dkg bread flour
  • 5 dl lukewarm water
  • 2 bags of yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of salt
  • 6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 6 pieces of dried tomatoes (optional)
Instructions
  1. Put the water, the yeast and the sugar into the robot machine and stir them together, then put aside for a little time.
  2. When the yeast has risen, slowly add the flour, salt and olive oil.
  3. (If you want a flavoured ciabatta, you should add the dried tomatoes cut into small pieces now, and switch up the 6 teaspoons of olive oil to 4 spoons of the dried tomatoes’ oil and 2 spoons of olive oil)
  4. Mould the raw dough. (Be careful, it is sticky!)
  5. Spread some olive oil gently on top of the raw dough, so it doesn't dry out, and leaven it at a warm place until it is double the size.
  6. When the dough has risen, put it on a well floured surface and cut into four pieces.
  7. Carefully shape them into elongated rectangles and twist on them two to three times, then put the raw ciabattas on a baking sheet with baking paper with flour on top.
  8. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees Celsius. Since the ciabattas have to be baked in steam, put a small bowl of water in the bottom of the oven or use the oven’s steaming option.
  9. While the oven is heating, let the baps rise.
  10. Place the ciabattas in the oven and bake them for 10 minutes at 230 degrees Celsius, then lower the heat to 200-210 degrees celsius and bake them for 12-15 minutes more.
