Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 10 min.
Two-olive ciabatta
Prepare the olive mixture by mixing 50 g olive oil, 100 g black olives and 100 g green olives (roughly chopped), 1 garlic clove (finely chopped) and ½ teaspoon herbes de Provence.

Stage 2

In bread-making, the water temperature is always important. It's not a fixed value, but related to 3 other temperatures: 1) the temperature of your flour, 2) the room temperature in your kitchen, and 3) the basic temperature of this recipe, which is 56-60°C.

You can calculate the temperature of the water for this recipe in one click, using this small calculator.

Stage 3 - 15 min.
Two-olive ciabatta
Put into a food processor bowl: 350 ml water at the right temperature, 9 g salt, 15 g yeast and - if possible - 150 g Soured dough.

Knead on slowest speed (1) for 10 minutes.

Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.

Stage 4 - 2 min.
Two-olive ciabatta
Add the olive mixture.

Stage 5 - 5 min.

Stage 6 - 2 hours

Stage 7 - 5 min.

After this time, divide the dough into pieces of around 250 grammes each.

Stage 8 - 5 min.

Form these lumps of dough into squares or rectangles.

Stage 9 - 1 hour

Arrange the loaves on a lightly floured cloth. A traditional French banneton is ideal for this, but not essential.

Cover with a sheet of plastic and leave to rest for 1 hour.

Stage 10 - 30 min.
Two-olive ciabatta
Preheat the oven for 250°C (480°F) and bake for around 30 minutes.

Note: As when baking any bread, you should ensure that the oven is filled with steam for the first 15 minutes of baking. This page shows you how; it really is the secret of golden-brown, crusty loaves..
These ciabattas are delicious on their own, simply sliced then cut small as aperifif snacks.
A few days wrapped in a cloth.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
