Paul Hollywood is one of the biggest names in bread making. I love watching him on the Great British Bake Off so much because I learn a whole lot from him. There is a lot of wisdom behind those piercing blue eyes! So this week I decided to attempt his recipe for homemade ciabatta because it looked so good. It was a technical challenge on the show a few seasons back and I am making it part of my tribute to the show. I’ve already made kouign amann, lemon poppy seed drizzle cake, and homemade English muffins and it has been such a blast to recreate these recipes from the show. The ciabatta bread was no different.
Oh my goodness, there is nothing like fresh and homemade bread. This homemade ciabatta had such fantastic flavor and texture. It made a lot so that I had sandwich bread for days. Whatever I didn’t need right away, I froze for later. I stayed very close to Paul’s recipe here, and I was so glad I did! Hope you all have fun trying your hand at making homemade bread too. xoxo
