I wanted something very, very simple that delivered great results in 60 seconds of prep time or less. It may take you a few tries to get below the one-minute mark, but I think you?ll enjoy the results every time!

Recipe Directions for Ciabatta

  1. Pour the warm water into the medium-size mixing bowl and stir in the yeast with a spoon. No need to be particular, just dump and slosh.

  2. Add flour and salt to your bowl of yeasty water.

  3. Use a spoon. You could use your hands if you wanted but you probably didn?t wash your hands before starting this anyhow. Start with a quick run about around the perimeter of the bowl with your spoon. A few quick strokes through the middle and you should have a heavy batter. If it looks too thick to be pancake batter and not thick enough to be playdough, you?re right on target.Cover your project with a hand towel or plastic wrap and set in a safe place for a few hours. After the dough has rested for 8 to 12 hours. There?s a lot of room for variation at this stage. The goal is to place the dough onto a surface that will keep it from falling through the oven rack and not stick on. I use an old cookie sheet sprinkled with flour and corn meal. You can use a buttered pan, pizza stone, or baking paper. It?s up to you. The flour/cornmeal method takes only a few seconds.

  4. Before you start prepping your pan/stone, set your oven to 400F. 200C Gas Mark 6.

  5. This is the fun part! Uncover the bowl of dough and slowly pour it out onto the pan you just prepared for it. You?ll want to use a spoon to guide the dough into place and get the last bits out of the bowl. The dough will be very wet and sticky.

  6. If you?re trying to stay within the one-minute prep, you probably won?t have time to sprinkle some of your favorite herbs onto your ciabatta before baking. If you?re not worried about time, some dried oregano, basil, and rosemary make a nice addition.Check on your ciabatta after about 25 minutes. Once it?s golden brown on top and looks good to eat, take it out of the oven and set it aside to cool for at least 10 minutes. You can cut into it immediately but if you do it?ll collapse and won?t look as pretty.
