The BYOB Bakers have been busy again baking bread, bread and more bread and other baked goods. I love it! I continue to be amazed by all of the fabulous and creative bakers out there. This month, some more wonderful bakers have joined the adventure.
Welcome BYOB Bakers! I hope you enjoy your journey with us as we Bake Our Own Bread in 2011.
We have a fabulous assortment of breads for the BYOB March Roundup. Let’s take a look!
Frieda of Frieda Loves Bread holds a giveaway at the beginning of every month for her local FB friends. The winner gets a bread of their choice baked and delivered to their home (within a 30 minute drive). This month’s winner chose light and tender doughnuts, made with potatoes. Don’t you wish you lived within 30 minutes of her?
Mmmm…that looks so good!
Heather of Girlichef made some delicious variety of breads and a tutorial on “How to make your own sourdough starter”. Great idea! She said, “it’s not really a bread, but pretty relevant, I think”. I agree. She named her starter Sally. I like that!
Pam of Pam’s Bread made some Dark and Dangerous Cinnamon Buns from KAF. Not to mention the flourless cake. Mmmm…sinfully delicious! She also did a very interesting comparison of heritage flours. I like mesquite flour myself.
Rita (aka Soepkipje) recently joined BYOB and created a lovely collage of her breads for March. You can find these lovely breads on here. Just look at all of those beautiful breads.
Andrea of Family & Food and Other Things made a variety of delicious breads and treats this month for all of her baking groups and some just for fun. My favorite is the Parrot Cake she made for her daughter’s birthday.
Marion in the United Kingdom made some delicious Coriander Seed Half and Half Bread glazed with orange marmalade. Yum! I’ll have to try the marmalade trick sometime.
Melanie of Mel’s Home Baking Adventures made some incredibly moist chocolate cupcakes and some delicious whole grain breads. I’d like a bite of those cupcakes thank you very much. Yum!
Jacqueline from Designing My Day just recently joined the BYOB fun and submitted these wonderful breads. Bread bookends. What a novel idea! Ha! And that Challah Heart for St. Valentine's Day and the beautiful braids. So cool!
Hanna of My Bread Baking Experiences made some easy and quick pizza with leftovers that was promptly enjoyed. I bet it was! She also made several loaves of white bread and some healthy and delicious whole grain bread.
Cat of Buttery Bakery made some divine baked goods this month. That molten chocolate cake is to die for and the brownie crisp, oh my! Well, February was Chocolate Lover’s Month so she definitely had it covered. She also made some healthy whole wheat bread to offset all of that chocolate.
Di of Di’s Kitchen Notebook was busy baking last month. Here is the list of breads she made in February. She also made herself a beautiful birthday cake. Happy Birthday!

Honeybee of Honeybee Cooks Jackfruit made some American Sandwich Bread. There’s nothing like a good ole loaf of white bread to add to your baking repertoire.
Swathi from Zesty South Indian Kitchen made some fabulous treats this month. I bet the roasted garlic bread smelled divine. Those heart-shaped cookies are so cute! And the orange flavored yogurt cake and orange flavored cookies. Yummy!
Cindy in Cedar Park, Texas made some delicious flatbread accidentally. She said, “Note to self: make mistakes like this more often! We love the sweet flavor and chewy texture of this bread, as well as the flavor of the seasonings spread on top.” Here is the list of breads she made in February.
Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
Garlic Naan, using Amish starter and 1/2 c whole wheat flour
I like these kinds of accidents!
Kummelweck Rolls - used for Beef on Weck sandwiches.
Champa of Versatile Vegetarian Kitchen kept busy baking this past month and she also hosted BBD#37. So many delicious breads and baked goods. Look at all of those yummy treats made with sourdough. Where do I start?
Roxana (aka Green Girl) of A Little Bit of Everything made an assortment of delicious breads and rolls. Everything looks so good! I love the picture of the rosemary on the Olive Oil Rosemary Bread. Very nice!
Kathy in Derwood, Maryland made a wonderful away of breads and other goodies in February. She said, “Thank heaven it was a short month!” My goodness! How did she pack so many wonderful breads into such a short month?

Priya of http://eq-myblog.blogspot.com/ made a delicious stuffed braided bread and some garlic rolls. She said, “since the bread with delicious stuffing was from whole wheat flour, it was to a great extent guilt-free indulgence!” I like her thinking.
Joshua of The Well-Cooked Lad has also just recently joined the adventure. He is a very enthusiastic young baker and I look forward to seeing more of his breads. Baking bread rolls on a rainy day is a wonderful way to brighten things up.
I also baked a few breads in February. Here are a few of my favorites:
Thanks for another great month of baking.
Until next month, BYOB!
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.
