When it comes to bread, you have a lot of tasty options. And most are made with the same ingredients – flour, water, yeast, and salt. However, combining these few simple ingredients turns into wonderful loaves of warm goodness.
Who doesn’t love warm bread?
Ciabatta and sourdough are two popular bread choices for bread baking. However, do you know the difference between ciabatta bread and sourdough bread?
Besides the obvious (Ciabatta is an Italian bread), one difference between ciabatta and sourdough is the leavening agent. Ciabatta uses a commercial leavening agent such as dry, instant, or fresh yeast, while sourdough does not. It uses a natural culture of wild yeasts and acid to raise the bread.
