This ciabatta bread recipe is really more of a reminder to anyone with a breadmaker, than a proper recipe.

We have a Panasonic SD253 breadmaker and it is wonderful. We have used it twice a week for the last year or so to make white or wholemeal loaves. However, we have only recently tried some of the other recipes that came with the breadmaker. Wow, they are really good.

If you have a Panasonic breadmaker, I urge you to try this recipe out! It's not really like ciabatta bread, but it is really light and airy and very tasty.

Ciabatta bread recipes

We have a number of tested ciabatta bread recipes. Some that are made entirely by hand, others where the dough is made in a breadmaking machine and then baked in an oven and some where the rising and the baking is done in a breadmaker.

Rather like a French baguette the secret to this light bread with a moist bubbly crumb is the long rise time, often with no added sugar. Using just the natural sugars found in the flour to feed the yeast .
