Chookie's sourdough ciabatta
« on: December 13, 2014, 06:19:41 am »
I think Chookie's ciabatta recipe disappeared during the server change over. I made it today using the recipe on her blog.

I started feeding my starter yesterday, so by this morning it was nice and active and full of big bubbles. I made the dough and did the knead, rest, knead, rest, knead this morning. I then went out for a family lunch and when I returned the dough had nicely doubled in size.

Here they are just out the oven, the crust is lovely and they smell great. I'll be back later to advise how they taste. They do look a bit rustic, but all my bread does!

We don't like to see our recipes go missing so thanks Katie for resurrecting this one via a link to Chookie's blog.  It looks great to me.

We had a small bit for dinner tonight and it tasted lovely.  Another great recipe from our bread queen.
Thanks again Chookie for all your recipes, help, knowledge and of course your sour dough starter.

Wow Katie.  That does look good. I find it toasts very well and also makes very good garlic bread.
