No knead ciabatta

Baked this very simple 95% hydrated no knead ciabatta last Sunday. You need only 3 4 ingredients for this bread, flour, salt and water and of course the yeast! How can I forget the yeast!  All you need to do is beat the hell out of the dough and then leave it to triple in size before shaping it (or try to!) and then bake at very high temperature for about 10 mins and viola! the ciabatta is done! Kept it in the fridge for those lazy days when there is no one to cook dinner (me not counted of cos!:D). Tonight is one such night.
So I fried some sausages and eggs and made a good sandwich with it, so crusty outside and hole-y, chewy soft inside..just so delicious!
This wonderful recipe can be found at this site.

  19. @Cheah...you have a great imaginative mind lol!

    @Kim....this bread is very easy to make with the help of a stand mixer!

    @MaryMoh...the mixer did the kneading I guess...you have to let it beat for at least 10 to 15 mins.

    @Sophie...I can't believe you still blog even while on holiday lol! hope you are enjoying yourself :)
