Is it August already? Wow! It’s been hot, hot, hot this summer but that hasn’t stopped this dedicated group of BYOB Bakers from baking bread and other goodies.
What have you been baking this summer?
If you’ve been hesitant to get in the kitchen and bake this summer, I invite you to enjoy the August BYOB roundup of breads and other baked goods. This ought to get you motivated.
I could spend the next year just baking through all of the breads and other baked goods that the other BYOB Bakers have baked this year. Enjoy!
Marion in the United Kingdom starts us out with a poem about baking bread. Very nice indeed!
This month I have tried
To be much more organised.
No 'where's a spoon, the salt, the flour?'
When it comes to kneading hour.
I planned to have the stuff laid out
Before I start my baking bout.
The plans were great - but no surprise
That it was fated otherwise.
The postman knocked - he'd a parcel brought,
The special 'must be signed for' sort.
So - to the door I had to go
With hands all lathered up in dough.
She also made some healthy breads:
Sourdough Bread With Mixed Flours, Seeds and Spices
Wholemeal and White Flour Lunch Rolls
Raisin and Sesame Seed Bread with Fresh Rosemary
I was trying to make pretzels but this reminds me of someone
Leslie of La Cocina de Leslie baked some delicious cakes, brownies and cookies this month. She also baked some yummy pies. She wasn’t sure if pies were allowed. Well, they’re definitely allowed at my house. Yum! I hope you enjoy them as well.
Beth of Life After Eating Disorder has gone baking… and in the process, she made some healthy blueberry muffins. Hey! If you have to be gone, I can’t think of a better way to spend your time.
Connie of mydiscoveryofbread doesn’t mind the heat. She’s been staying busy making these beautiful breads.
Gayathri of Gayathri's Cook Spot has been a busy bee in the kitchen. Take a look at all of the wonderful goodies she baked in July. They all look delicious to me.

Winnie of Somthing Sweet says, “It's hotttttttttttttttttttttttt outside, but cool and nice inside. So baking is fun fun fun!!:):)” I’d say so. I’m interested in the two-poolish-dough challah buns. Yum!

Margie of Tea and Scones made the delicious pull-apart bread from the BOM (Artisan Bread Bakers) last month and some crumpets. Mmmm…I’d like a cup of tea with those crumpets.
I’ve been trying to stay out of the heat outside so baking bread inside is a good alternative. Here are some of the breads I made in July::
This bread was ‘da bom if you ask me!
Another great month of bread-baking.Thanks to everyone who participated in July.
Until next month…
