So I wanted to test a recipe yesterday for ciabatta. Here are a couple photos. This frist shot is the dough right after the last fold.
Here are two finished loafs. The left is par and the right is light bake. I underproofed the loaf on the left as well because I’m not finished building my wood fired oven and only have one space at a time in my electric oven. I have a large piece of slate I use to bake on in this oven.
I was generally pleased with the results for hand kneaded ciabatta. Got the new dough hook today for grandma’s old mixer. Making another batch tomorrow.
