Recipe's preparation

  1. SPONGE

    In a mixing bowl, add the yeast to the water, allow to stand for 3-4 minutes, stirring gently. Sift the flour and add to the yeast. Combine ingredients well, cover and let stand at room temperature for 12 hours. (if you are in a hurry and forget to let it sit the night before, I have done this only an hour or 2 before making the dough and its been fine. Just make sure it has lots of bubbles in it.)

     Dough:

    Add the milk to the TM bowl and warm for 1 min at 50 degrees speed 1, add yeast and stir on speed 1 for 30 seconds. let it stand 3-4 minutes to be sure the yeast is working. 

         Add the, water, oil and the sponge mix to the milk and yeast and mix on speed 4 for 5 seconds.

    Add 2 cups of flour and the salt and knead for 5 minutes on interval setting, adding the remaining flour slowly, or more water, until the dough begins to pull from the sides of the bowl.  The dough should be quite soft; firm enough to handle without sticking to the hands, but still very soft. Add the last of the flour slowly. Or, add water if necessary.

       Cover or place in a large, oiled bowl and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until tripled in size and bubbly. 

           Place the dough on floured baking paper or other surface and divide into 4 pieces, but do not punch down. Form in rectangles about 10” x 4”/25 x 10 cm in size and press down lightly with the fingers. Cover the dough and let rise for 90 minutes. The dough will rise only slightly.  

    The flour on the surface where the bread makes its final rise is what remains on the top of the loaf after baking. With practice you can adjust the amount to get a pleasing appearance. You can also form them into about 6 to 8 rolls. Preheat oven to 200°c7.  

    Heat bread mat (or tray with baking paper on) in the oven for about 15 minutes. (you may need 2 trays depending on size) Pick up the loaves (carefully), turn them over and lay them upside down on the tray being careful not to press out the air. Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes until bread just begins to turn golden. During the first 10 minutes, paint or spray the bread with water 3 times.

  • Made these today I found the

    Submitted by Lara03 on 21. February 2016 - 15:18.

    Made these today I found the recipe a little hard to follow at times ie: it should state somewhere to weigh and measure flour out first and have it sitting on the side to come back to when you need to add the flour by two cups and then the remainder. The finished product tastes great but it is not a true ciabatta it hasn't got large holes to the bread on the inside and it looks  more like regular bread inside, however the outside has a nice crust. Did I do something wrong for it to not have the big holes on the inside?

  • I made a full starter, but

    Submitted by Pam Ditchfield on 3. February 2015 - 16:51.

    I made a full starter, but only want to use half of it, how can I keep it for use later, maybe a week or so?

    have place under cling film on the fridge, but should it be fed or something?

  • Hi just wondering is the

    Submitted by maximoomoo on 10. July 2012 - 10:31.

    Hi just wondering is the flour in the second part (dough) just plain flour??  First part sponge states bakers flour and second part dough just states flour which leads me to think it is just plain flour??  Could you confirm I am on the right track.

    Thanks so looking forward to trying this bread!!!

  • This is one of the best bread

    Submitted by mummyzara on 15. May 2012 - 23:05.

    This is one of the best bread I'd ever made...  The bread is soft and chewy.. even after a couple of days.

    As this yielded quite a few loaves, I froze some. 200C for 15mins, cooled them and then froze them.

    To use them whenever I want, put them into the cool oven immediately out of the freezer, and turned on the heat 200C for 12~15mins.

  • Bread Flour is a high gluten

    Submitted by CathyM on 11. February 2012 - 17:02.

    Bread Flour is a high gluten flour needed to give your bread a nice lift and make it light. it is only used for bread making to my knowledge but i have used it instead of plaing flour when i have run out. if you use normal plain flour for bread it wont be as good.

  • Hubby and I won't need 4

    Submitted by 8chelsea8 on 10. February 2012 - 19:54.

    Hubby and I won't need 4 loaves at once so is the baked bread suitable to freeze or maybe a par bake and freeze?

    Cheers
