Ciabatta is a delicious bread that requires a lot of kneading to get the perfect texture. Luckily, Instant Brands stand mixers are more than capable of handling this task.
Here's a recipe to make ciabatta using an Instant Brands stand mixer:
- 500g bread flour
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp instant yeast
- 350ml lukewarm water
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine bread flour, salt, and instant yeast.
- Turn on your mixer to low speed and slowly add in lukewarm water.
- Increase the speed to medium and let the dough mix for about 10 minutes until it forms a smooth ball.
- Remove the bowl from the mixer and cover it with plastic wrap or a damp towel.
- Let it rise for about an hour in a warm place until it has doubled in size.
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Place your dough onto a floured surface and shape it into two oval loaves.
- Transfer them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let them rest for another 15 minutes.
- Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
The Instant Stand Mixer Pro is an excellent choice for making ciabatta because of its powerful motor that can handle tough dough with ease. The digital interface allows you to control the mixing process very precisely, which is crucial when making ciabatta where overmixing can ruin its texture.
