BYOB Roundup 8 ~ May 15, 2009


Ning of Heart and Hearth brings us this absolutely delectable-looking but easy (she says) Beer Bread! With its buttery golden brown crust, this seems perfect to serve alongside soup or as a snack. It's actually a quick bread ~ the beer and baking powder take on the job as leaveners here.

Lucky for us, Chrystal and Amir of The Duo Dishes have been busy bakers. They offer melt-in-your-mouth Buttermilk Biscuits, the perfect blank canvas for your favorite homemade jam or local honey. And, Lemon Ginger Cream Cheese Muffins ~ You may very well want to make these the next thing you bake for breakfast!

Mia of Stoned Knitter was fortunate enough to have a friend teach her how to make Indian Chaphati, a flatbread I could easily eat every single day. Check out her pictures!

Shirley of Plum Bush Cottage made . . . Beignets! That's right ~ plump little pillows of deep-fried deliciousness. You know you want some!

Liz of Just Me Eating was busy in her kitchen, making Whole Wheat Buttermilk Sandwich Bread (and how good does that sound!?) and Close Enough Rolls. If you have (and use) a bread machine, you won't want to miss that buttermilk loaf recipe!

Frieda of Lovin' from the Oven brings Buttery Breadsticks (and step-by-step instructions!) to the BYOB party. Her photos and careful directions are a huge help if you've never made these before. Go check them out! You'll be so happy you did, especially when you've got a pile of these buttery, garlicky babies on the table in front of you.

Kate of Warm Olives made a couple of really interesting things to share with us: Stealth Cinnamon Rolls and Banana Blueberry Breakfast Bread. You'll never believe these beauties ~ both yeast breads ~ start with . . . a boxed cake mix!
Kim of Stirring the Pot made Almost Famous Breadsticks just like the ones you'd find at the Olive Garden (you know the ones ~ yeah, those). They look pretty yummy, Kim!

Laura of Real Good Food made shallot-studded Hamburger Buns, and let me tell you, I feel inspired to plan a cookout just to feature these babies. (Great call on the shallots, Laura!) And if you want to check out how those burger buns look on active duty, click here.

Jude of Apple Pie, Patis, and Pate made gorgeous ~ gorgeous ~ Anadama Bread for the new Bread Baker's Apprentice challenge group (which, btw, I am also a member of ~ yay!). Jude shows us an incredibly beautiful Anadama crumb. Go. See!

As for me, I've been baking up a storm, and in inverse proportion, falling behind on my posts. I apologize. What I've got coming up for you will (hopefully) make up for it. Homemade English muffins, lime buttercream-filled melting moments, banana chocolate chip streusel muffins, and a few other little yummies. In the meantime, enjoy the cooler days for baking before the summer is upon us!

Best,
Sandy

Fabulous roundup. You're certainly making me hungry for some bread!! Sorry that I’ve been an absent commenter; I just finished up my law school exams and am finally getting around to my google reader.

Thanks for another roundup! I just want to say, warmer days aren't going to stop me from baking :)
