My first Ciabatta

My first Ciabatta

It could probably use a little less flour next time, but I'm glad the holes aren't too big to hold a little butter.

GlindaBunny, those look wonderful, congratulations! Which recipe did you use? Did you find it easy or difficult? They look so professional - just like old slippers! A.

I used the quick one from this site:


I know it's horrible, but I still don't have a scale yet.  I guessed the measurements.  I used 3 1/2 cups flour... ran out of bread flour, so used AP.  I had absolutely no clue how much salt 15 grams was.  I used 2 t of kosher salt and it seemed to taste right to me.


They're all gone now...

Great looking loaves. Cripes, you should have seen my first ciabatta. Looked like a flatbread ....
