BYOB: February 2011 Roundup

We’ve had a tremendous response to BYOB so far this year. Several new bakers have joined in the fun for 2011. I’m excited about baking with such a wonderful group of bakers. 

The idea behind BYOB is that instead of running to the store to buy a loaf of bread, pastry or sandwich buns, you make them yourself.

For the monthly roundup, I did things a little bit different this time.  We have some non-bloggers participating in the fun so they’ll be included in the roundup as well.  Some of them have submitted photos and some just a list of the breads they’ve made.  Either way, I’m excited to showcase everyone’s efforts.

Here are the breads and other baked goods the BYOB Bakers made in January 2011. I hope you enjoy all of these wonderful breads.

No Knead Bread, Revisited

 

Cindy in Cedar Park, Texas baked a wonderful assortment of breads in January. Here is her list of breads along with some photos:

  • Amish Friendship Bread – I baked this in a bundt pan. This is great for breakfast.
  • Banana Nut Raisin Muffins – we usually make a batch of these every month.
  • Focaccia Bread – we love to eat this spread with fresh guacamole, grilled onions and red peppers, and topped with garlic and herb feta cheese. We also made mini-pizzas with it.
  • Garlic Naan Breads – spread with garlic hummus, these are great for a light lunch eaten with fresh fruit. We make a batch of these every month.
  • Zuchini Muffins – first time making these. Just like Banana Nut bread only with shredded zuchini instead of bananas.
  • Sourdough Bread – toasted with butter, it is a wonderful accompaniment for the soups we enjoyed this month: turkey rice, sausage and potato, and tomato basil. This bread also makes great french toast.
  • Homemade Pizza Dough – used for a pepperoni pizza. My bread machine finally died so I had to find another pizza dough recipe to make by hand. Didn’t turn out quite right this time. Need to bake the crust more before adding the toppings. Plus I probably should increase the temperature since the dough is much denser.

I’m Cathy, the face behind the site.I work in the corporate world as a project manager and as you can imagine, my job can be very stressful at times. Baking bread is a wonderful stress reliever. I especially enjoy baking bread on the weekends and allowing the dough to slow ferment to bring out the flavor and nutritional properties of the bread.
