Six Hour Mixer Bread

When you are stuck at home on a snow day, it is the perfect thing to keep you busy! 


3 3/4 cups of flour
1 tablespoon of salt
2 teaspoons of dry yeast
2 cups of warm water at around 105*F

Mix flour, yeast, and salt in Kitchen Aid Mixer Bowl. 

With paddle attachment, mix on low for 1 minute.

Add warm water, mix until combined, let rest for 10-20 minutes.

Mix on speed 6 for 7 minutes.

Remove dough from paddle attachment, and attach the hook.

With the hook, mix on speed 8 until the bottom of the bowl is clean (about 12 minutes). Mix for an additional minute.

In a large, deep bowl, spray cooking spray. Place dough in the bowl, and cover with plastic and a clean kitchen towel. The dough will be sticky, handle with wet hands.

Sit in a warm place (turn on oven to lowest temp for 5 minutes, and turn off) and let the dough rise for 2-3 hours. Wet the counter and lay 2 sheets of plastic wrap on it. Sprinkle flour on top of the plastic wrap. Pour dough onto it.

Split it into 2 loaves, and shape into ciabatta shape. Cover the loaf with flour.

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and set parchment paper on top. Pick up the plastic, and flip it onto the cookie sheet.

Let it rest for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425* and lay a baking sheet full of water on the bottom rack of your oven, to help steam the loaves.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool and enjoy your hard work!

Watch how hard your mixer has to work! :)
