Pour the water into the bowl and stir to combine.
Sprinkle the salt over the top and beat well.
Add one spoon of the oil and stir the batter.
Invert a large bowl over the batter and leave to rest in a warm place until risen, about 90 minutes.
Rub some oil around the inside of a large baking tray or insert a baking liner.
Sprinkle the remaining spoon of oil over the dough.
Using a spatula, gently scrape around the edge of the swollen batter and ease it onto the baking tray.

I made your Ciabatta today. I had no bread flour so used your plain flour which worked very well. It is absolutely delicious, really easy to make and tastes so good. My husband who is not gf thought it was great too
