Bake Your Own Bread (BYOB) June 2011 Roundup

Print Friendly and PDF

Is it June already? My, but time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve reached the mid-point for BYOB 2011 and we’re still baking and baking (like the Energizer Bunny).

It’s hot outside and even hotter in the kitchen, but that hasn’t stopped the BYOB Bakers.  They’re still baking bread with the best of them.  I look forward to baking bread with this group throughout the rest of 2011.

What is BYOB?

BYOB is a yearlong adventure in baking bread.  The goal is to bake as much of your own bread and other baked goods as possible in 2011.

Take a look at all of the baked delights the BYOB Bakers made in May.

Marion in the United Kingdom starts off the roundup with Wholemeal and Caraway Rolls with fresh Rosemary. Caraway is one of her big favourites and she loves the scent and taste of rosemary too - so she tried to combine them.  Sounds good to me. She also made some Sultana Walnut Scones.

Sultana Walnut Scones

Made with a flour which was lighter than wholemeal but darker than white with very little sugar, so the scones can be eaten with cheese or jam at tea time.

 

 

 


Frieda of Frieda Loves Bread made some delicious hamburger buns.  She said, “It’s finally grilling season around here, and although I love a good wheat bun, my hubby loves the white.  So I created a quick, French Hamburger bun.”  Works for me!

Jill of BakingBread-101.com went to Disney with her family last month and while they were there, they went to the 10 minutes Boudin Bakery tour, and sampled the sourdough bread. She took a picture of one of the breads to share with us.  She also baked some white bread for her daughter's lunches.

Although Jill did not bake this Mickey Mouse bread, I’m so glad she took a photo to share with us.

Jill wanted to try her new dehydrator, which worked like a charm and made reasonably quick work with the apples.  Her family loves this bread. 

 

 

 


Gayathri of Gayathri's Cook Spot submitted some unique treats this month.  They all look healthy and delicious.

Pudachi-Wadi

 

Pudachi Wadi – These rolls are usually deep fried, but she tried the baked version.

Abby of Stir It! Scrape It! Mix It! Bake It! submitted some of her favorite breads for the month and the best chocolate cake she’s ever baked.  Everything looks great!  But tell me, is there a chocolate cake that isn’t good?

Cindy in Cedar Park, Texas baked her usual assortment of breads, as she put it.  I’d say she made a few breads.

  • Raisin Challah - we love this bread for picnic lunches at the winery, accompanied by fruit, summer sausage, mixed nuts and a bottle of wine.
  • Kemmelweck rolls - this time we baked these plain, without the salt and caraway seeds, so we could enjoy them as sandwich rolls and hamburger buns.
  • Amish Friendship bread - we are starting to call this Amish Coffeecake since we usually enjoy this at breakfast.
  • Sourdough loaf - we are trying to find a new name for this one since it is made with the sweet Amish Friendship starter instead of a sourdough starter. We use it for garlic toast served with spaghetti, or just toasted, buttered and served with soups. It's kind of a daily bread or a table bread, like the French drink a table wine at every meal.
  • Oatmeal Raisin Scones - always nice for a light breakfast when we have to rush out in the morning.
  • Flatbread - best when toasted and warm. We enjoy it with cheese and fruit for lunch.
  • Focaccia bread and Pizza dough - this month I spread the focaccia dough onto 2 metal pizza pans and made thin crusted pizzas. Wonderful and crispy.
  • Calzone - using the focaccia dough, I cover it with the usual pizza toppings along with some ricotta cheese mixed with an egg, then fold one side over the toppings to make the calzone. Yum!

She experimented with a new bread this month: pretzels. She found a simple recipe online that didn't require a lye bath, cause that just sounded awful. Very easy to do and a great side with Jambalaya.
