Easy Ciabatta Bread
Original recipe from: Thermomiss … from the Recipe Community.
500g bakers flour
470 g warm water
1 sachet dried yeast
2 tspn salt
Prep time:
3 ½ hours
Total Time:
3 hours 45
Makes: 3 small loaves
1. Add all ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix 8 seconds / speed 6. Allow mixture to rest in the bowl
for 10 minutes.
2. Now mix for 3 minutes / speed 9 on reverse. This will add lots of air and make your Thermomix
dance so don’t go away.
3. Pour the dough (it will be moist and sticky) into a large oiled bowl and cover with your thermomat or
cling wrap. Let it sit for 2 ½ hours by which time it should have tripled in size.
4. Scrape out the dough onto a well-floured thermomat.
5. Use your spatula to divide, and shape it into 3 similar sized portions. Sprinkle with extra flour. Leave it
to prove for another 45 minutes.
6. Heat the oven to 250° C while proving and line baking trays.
7. With well-floured hands, pick up each dough and quickly but gently flip it while stretching it into an
oblong shape. (This helps spread the air bubbles …. I promise it does work)
8. Bake at 250° C for 5 minutes, then turn the oven down to 200° for the next 10 minutes or so until the
bread is starting to brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
This is a really sticky dough, so keep your hands well-floured and wash your bowl with cold water first.
