Bake Your Own Bread (BYOB) October 2011 Roundup

Fall is finally here!  The leaves are starting to change color and there is a crispness in the air. Don’t you just love this time of year? It’s a great time to be baking.

The BYOB Bakers have been doing just that.  Can you smell the wonderful aroma coming from their kitchens?  It’s the smell of freshly baked bread.  Mmmm…not to mention the wonderful smells of Fall – apples, pumpkins and spices, oh my!


I’m getting hungry just thinking about all of the breads and other baked goods everyone has been baking.  Let’s go take a peek at what the BYOB Bakers baked in September. You’re sure to find something you like.




Marion in the United Kingdom starts us out.  She’s been bitten by the sourdough bug. She said some spectacular disasters went straight onto the compost heap and wondered how it is possible to wreck something so completely.  I wonder that myself sometimes. I think she’s doing just fine.

Kathy in Derwood, Maryland is still busy baking and canning.  She just finished putting up grape jelly and juice. Yum!  Apples are up this weekend, and hopefully time to try the sourdough starter she just received.  Sounds good to me. Here are the breads she’s been making:

  • Farmstead White Bread
  • 100% Whole Wheat Bread
  • Kaiser Rolls
  • Italian (Semolina) Bread
  • Beer Crust Pizzas
  • Donut Muffins
  • Blueberry Muffins
  • Brownies
  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
  • Crumb Cakes



Heather of GirliChef shares a couple of delicious treats. That Raisin Rosemary Bread does sound heavenly especially paired with sharp cheddar cheese. Great idea to let the bread machine do the heavy work.

Jill of said she didn't realize her camera battery was dead so none of her pictures took.  She did bake though!  I’d say!  Everything sounds delicious!

  • Blueberry Muffins
  • Carrot cake muffins

  • Wheat bread
  • Cinnamon raisin bread
  • Sugar cookies
