This is not ciabatta. I will continue forward in my quest for mastering ciabatta. However, while on the road to ciabatta, I will be eating this bread. There is a very slight twang to it but the best part is that it’s the lightest bread I’ve ever turned out. It was perfect as breakfast toast and it’s going to be perfect for sandwiches. I dare say I’d make a serious pressed sandwich with this bread. I need to find whole wheat bread flour.
By the way, these are huge. They rose beautifully for sandwich bread but there’s still a balance needed to obtain those ciabatta windows of dough.
