Ciabatta bread (breadmaker 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.
- 1 teaspoon dried yeast
- 500 g (14 oz) Very strong white flour
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 350 ml water - or by weight instead of volume, 350 g water

- For the Panasonic SD253 breadmaker, select Italian Bake program
- For the Panasonic SD-ZB2502 automatic breadmaker use menu option 09, Italian bake
- Wait 4 hours for wonderfully light white bread.

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 .
