September is finally here. It’s been so hot lately, that even I haven’t been motivated to bake as much bread as usual. However, this dedicated group of bakers managed to get some baking done in August in spite of the heat.
We made it through the heat of the summer. Now, it’s time to enjoy the lovely breads and other baked goods in the BYOB September Roundup.
Idania of El Aroma de IDania decided that before she closed the doors of "El Aroma de IDania" until September 1st, she wanted to publish one more bread. I’m so glad she chose to post about bread, especially this one.
Marion in the United Kingdom is very pleased that she has not bought a single loaf since February - and every time she visits her daughter and grandchildren, she can take some home made bread. We’re proud of you too!

Abby with Stir It! Scrape It! Mix It! Bake It! also chose to make Focaccia with the Mellow Bakers in August. Good choice! I liked this one myself.
Heather of girlichef baked some delightful breads and a yummy pastry this month. The Oatmeal Molasses Bread from the Joy of Cooking looks especially healthy and delicious.
Jill of BakingBread-101.com baked ginger cookies and some light multi-grain bread this month. Although she didn’t bake as much this month, she also didn't buy any bread—she ate from the freezer. Way to go!
Winnie of Somthing Sweet has been a busy baker this past month. She made some unique breads and other baked goods. I may have to give that Avocado Brioche a try.
Avocado Brioche – challahs & rolls Using avocado instead of butter

The weather has been too hot and humid for Leslie of La Cocina de Leslie to bake very much this month, but she did have some fun baking Conchas with Heather of girlichef. She made chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Yum!

Connie of mydiscoveryofbread said that just before the workmen came and turned their house and of course the kitchen into a big cloud of dust and white paint, she baked these breads. We’re so glad she was able to get some baking in.
Pam of http://pamsbread.com/ has been working on improving the protein content of her breads. She said she liked the last two breads quite a bit. They had better structure than the other ones. They look good to me.
Calamity Jane of Apron Stringz made the perfect whole grain biscuits. She said no jam or honey for her… just the pure flavors of flour, butter and heaven. I agree! Being a Southerner, I love me some biscuits. Check these out.
Kathy in Derwood, Maryland baked the following breads and other goodies in August. Then she went back to canning peaches and nectarines. Sounds good to me.
- Beer Crust Pizzas
- Grill Bread
- White Pullman Loaf
- Blueberry Muffins
- Department Store Muffins
- Donut Muffins
- Chocolate Cupcakes
- Grandma's White Moon Cake

Di of diskitchennotebook said “It's been so darn hot here (79 days of 100+, eek!) that I haven't been baking much bread. The ice cream machine has been going strong, though.” I heard that!
I managed to bake a few breads this month, but I mostly focused on canning peaches and tomatoes. Here are my favorite breads from this month’s baking.
Until next month…
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.
