I am just dipping my toe into bread baking. The flavor of this bread is fairly mild because the starter (biga) is not fermented for very long. I absolutely love the crisp crust and large holes common to this Italian “slipper” loaf, so I was most excited to get started on this recipe. Help please! Once I get the biga going, why do I need the teaspoon of commercial yeast? I followed the ingredients exactly and used a scale. It’s possible that your dough is either under or over proofed. Dried yeast 1g. I made the biga 24 hours prior. Your email address will not be published. Time, temperature of the proofing, activity of yeast all matter. Cut. It was impossible to shape it it just flooded the pan. Thanks David. You’d bake them somewhere less time that the whole loaf, perhaps 5 to 10 minutes less. Thanks. The dough rose in the time suggested. I have tried 4 different ones & they were good, this one much better than good. Thanks good to know for next time. Even though I prefer my olives on the side, I do add olives sometimes to my other loaves. Thank you for hosting this site and providing the directions. 2. It was far and away the best. Pour the ice cubes into the hot skillet and quickly close the oven door. After 2 hours I baked my breads. I love the time it tales to make bread. Never being a bread baker and failing at it forever, I did this entire recipe from the biga on. I would love to see a picture, for comparison, of that sticky risen dough after I turn it out next. Will try this soon. But, I did end up finding it on an older version of the page on the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20180812213438/https://bakerbettie.com/authentic-ciabatta-bread-recipe/. The biga recipe should yield 590 grams, as opposed to 540 grams. I believe you’re baking in Australia, yes? Hi I am just trying this recipe for the first time. I am so happy to hear that! My sourdough does this too, so I wasn’t worried. Brilliant. I would have expected 00 flour to be necessary for this kind of bread—I was even considering ordering some “rinforzata” flour specifically for ciabatta. Please let us know, Jeffrey. You may want to instead consider making a dough that naturally doesn’t call for milk, such as this bread that we’ve made literally hundreds of times and loved. Then you scrape it into a ball and do it again.  Also I use a technique I learned from America Test Kitchen (I think):  I use two aluminum pie pans, one directly under the baking stone and another one on the floor of the oven directly beneath that one. Nina, the crust would dry out too much. This is why I say it's the easiest recipe.  Letting the loaves cool now and they smell amazing. It’s so good to see you carry on so many baking traditions, ruthie. Serve warm for a quick supper you'll really enjoy, Turn an open sandwich into a filling and easy meal, with this fast and flavoursome recipe, Pan-fry chicken and ciabatta chunks, then toss with red cabbage, red onion and pomegranate seeds in this easy and attractive dish, Simple sandwiches to whip up as a speedy vegetarian supper or lunch, Prep this sausage, kale and bread stuffing up to two days in advance, then bake on the day. I always weigh my ingredients so I should have added less flour. After shaping I let it rise 2 hrs before baking at 425 on hot stone. It’s not the loaf I’d add anything to. Can I use 00 flour? Old dough has, obviously, all the ingredients characteristic of the final loaf. I’m pleased with this recipe, I’d tried another and it wasn’t nearly a success, Lovely to hear, Carey! Hi there! our tablespoon is 20 ml and yours is 15. The bread turned out fabuloso. The second time I made these, I followed the recipe, but substituted bread flour for the AP. Made four loaves in our wood-fired oven and all gone within 24 hours. Hi Nicole! Making the whole recipe, I have to freeze two baked loaves. Followed recipe exactly. one cup of ice on a large cookie sheet works best for me, I tried it AGAIN THOUGH, and this time is came out perfect! I would say this is actually a 3-loaf recipe. Steve, we’ll be standing by to hear how it went! No sticky dough to handle. My husband said this was my best bread ever. It’ll be pretty sticky and rather slack, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Made four loaves yesterday and they came out great. I asked our resident bread expert, a professional who teaches classes on the topic, and here’s what she says…best of luck! The resulting bread has the much-desired crispy crust and soft and “holey” inside, ready to be eaten warm with some wonderful grassy olive oil or sliced lengthwise for some delicious paninis! Greatly appreciate you taking the time to correct us on our Italian! Already had The Italian Baker cookbook from years ago, and I am so happy to have kept it. But the results were disastrous. Thanks. They baked up to a really nice chewy golden brown. In our experience, ciabatta is tricky enough to make even when all circumstances are ideal, and so I suspect that the high-altitude adjustments, though well-intentioned and clearly appropriate for most recipes, may have sorta freaked this loaf out a little. Hi Sukanya, so glad you found a bread for your paninis. As well, the hole size may be a function of the amount of kneading using a stand mixer. If the dough sticks a bit to the parchment, just gently work it free from the paper. Next time, you might use a wooden spoon to incorporate the biga a bit before using the stand mixer. I have tried ciabatta before with marginal success. Cover with plastic wrap. This is the first time I have baked with a starter. We'd love to see your creations on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. And I use the organic unbleached all purpose four. Thanks so much for the response…love this recipe..experimenting with different flours and yeasts in search of the magic Holey bread :). Hello. With good reason. It’s also important not to overdo the amount. I also used some whole-wheat flour because we are not used to “white bread” here. Adina, we haven’t tried it with a dairy substitute, so I can’t say for certain. The dough will rise a lot, so you must use a very big pot, so the dough doesn’t have problems with space while rising. This time – when I divided the dough, I set aside half and rolled out 2 loaves to bake – with the other half I made roman style thin crust rectangular pizza………. Your biga was definitely active, yes? Your ciabatta looks fantastic, Beryl. Again this dough was more like a large sticky mass. It was too dense…. Both sets of loaves were very nice, but the 2-hour rise resulted in fuller loaves with a chewier crumb. I did double it but Hadn’t taken into account I only have a 5 quart bowl on my mixer, so i had to mix 2 batches. I let my biga sit for 2 days so not sure on that but we dipped these, warm, in olive oil with fresh grated parm and fresh ground black pepper..mmmm…my Italian husband said “wow” at least 30 times and ate 4 rolls along with lasagna! Will try again with a touch more flour and a longer second rise. Thank you for supporting Baker Bettie! Ready through the recipe, is there a step missing in shaping the loaves? The dough will be very sticky. Tagged you in Insta so you can see the stages. That is what I used, and the loaves came out perfect. Some people have found it to be a daunting recipe–I so happy you like it. This is how they looked before going into the oven. Easy recipe and makes a traditional ciabatta. I found the instructions very simple to follow. I have to say, every time I’ve tried to make ciabatta, the big holes have all been at the top, so I find the idea of flipping them right before baking really attractive! Maybe 4 to 5 ounces for this recipe, at least the first time you try it. Thanks so much for taking the time to chime in, amy.
