Break from the norm and try this wonderful Italian bread. Delicious freshly baked.

Method

  1. Put the flour, sugar, salt and yeast into a bowl. Mix to a soft dough with the oil and water.

  2. Turn onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.

  3. Divide the dough into two pieces. Stretch each piece into a rough circle about this size of a dinner plate and then fold like an envelope to give the traditional ciabatta shape.

  4. Place the loaves on a greased baking tray and leave covered with a tea towel until slightly risen. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan, gas mark 6).

  5. Dust liberally with flour and bake in an oven for 15-20 minutes until well risen and puffy.

  6. Leave on a wire rack to cool.

    Tried this and it works very well indeed. This will become my 'quick bread for lunch' recipe to go with a soup or plough mans.
