Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large bowl, mix the warm water with the yeast.
  • Add the flour and the salt and stir until you all of the flour is worked into the water.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let this sit in a warm place for one hour. (Watch the dough if you didn't use a large enough bowl.)
  • After one hour, remove plastic wrap and stir down the dough.
  • Sprinkle a handful of flour (about 1/4 cup) on to your counter and turn the bowl upside down over the flour, letting the dough fall on to the flour.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold the dough over itself four times and cut the dough in half.
  • If the dough is too sticky to move, sprinkle it with more flour until you can roll the dough on your counter into a baguette about 12-15 inches long.
  • Place the loaf of dough on to a pan covered with foil.
  • Repeat with the other half of the dough and place on foil.
  • Let the dough rise for one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees 15 minutes before the hour.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Check the dough by removing from the oven and turning it over to see if the bottom has browned. If you tap on the dough and it sounds hollow, its done.
  • Remove dough from oven and allow to cool before cutting.

    This is a great ciabatta bread and very easy. I made it into rolls and used them for BLT,s. I don' t know why that guy said it was a bad recipe. Better than store bought. Thanks for a great recipe

    This is absolutely a bad recipe. Ingredient proportions are out of whack to make it as the instructions decry. The picture is of a square loaf, not a free-formed baguette.
    See Easy Ciabatta for further info.
