Bake Your Own Bread (BYOB) December 2011 Roundup

Print Friendly and PDF

Another year, another loaf of bread…

 

BYOB has moved and is now hosted by

Carola of Sweet and That's it.

 

The BYOB Bakers have spent the past year baking and sharing bread together.  It’s been a great ride!  We have one more roundup at the end of this month to showcase our Holiday breads. Then our BYOB 2011 journey will come to a close.

BYOB began with Sandy of At the Bakers Bench in 2009. The tradition moved to the Bread Experience in 2010 and has rested here for the past year and a half.  Now it’s time to get the BYOB train moving again.

I want to thank Sandy for beginning this wonderful tradition and for being willing to pass the BYOB torch on. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed hosting the roundups each month. My journey hosting BYOB is coming to a close, but this is not the end, it’s just another step in our bread-baking journey.

 

Now, on to the roundup…

 

 

Marion in the United Kingdom starts us out with some delicious pumpkin breads.  She said “every November I remember gratefully the eighteen months I spent working in California more than 50 years ago. I fell in love then with the pumpkin in all its wonderful guises.”  A very nice memory indeed.

Heather of Girlichef made an assortment of lovely Fall breads.  She was so inspired by the croissants that she penned a couple of haikus.  Those must’ve been some croissants to inspire her to write about them.  Now I’m inspired!

“Happy chewing sounds
Tender buttery layers
Crisp flaky crumbs fall.”

--Heather of Girlichef

  • Blackberry Muffins
  • Pumpkin Bread
  • Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls
  • Several loaves of Light Multigrain Sandwich Bread
  • 3 Apple Cranberry Pies with Oatmeal Streusel Topping
  • 4 Pumpkin Pies in a Gingerbread Cookie Crust
  • 1 Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with a Streusel Topping in an Almond Butter Crust
  • Cinnamon Twists

 

 


Gayathri of Gayathri's Cook Spot made some delicious treats in November. Gorgeous photos! Everything looks so mouthwatering, I’m getting hungry just looking at them. I’ve never heard of Musk Melon Crackers.  Another one to add to my list.

Kathy of Panini Happy posted some beautiful classic dinner rolls on her other blog.  I like what she had to say about bread, “Bread and I have had a longstanding wonderful relationship – one which I’ve begun to appreciate even more as I become more comfortable baking with yeast.”  We are right there with you…

Soep of http://www.ipernity.com/home/soepkipje made some lovely breads in November.  She apologized that there wasn't much time for baking, so most of her breads came from her bread maker. I think a bread machine is a great tool so no condemnation here. The idea is to bake bread…

Margie of Tea and Scones made some Turkish Flat Bread called Ekmek.  Say that three times…  It looks great!

I hope everyone has enjoyed the BYOB journey so far. I’ve learned so much from this wonderful group of bakers. Every month, the BYOB bakers share so many creative and wonderful breads and other baked goods. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got so many new breads to try, it could take me another year to make them all.

We’re winding down for 2011, but the fun doesn’t stop there.  Head on over the Heather’s blog to find out what she has in store for BYOB 2012.

 

Happy Baking!  I’ll see you at the end of the month for our final roundup!
