KAAK! Bread Baking Babes bake Lebanese Kaak.

The Bread Baking Babes are continuing their world tour, this month hitting the streets of Lebanon.

They’re making purses…..

How handy is that? Fill it with something delicious, grab it by the handle and ride off for a picnic.

Karen, of Bake My Day and our host kitchen for the month, says the bread is similar to one she gets at her local Turkish market.

In Lebanon the breads are strung on poles and sold from street carts.

The vendor makes a pocket and fills it with soft cheese or za’atar (could I have both, please?)

The bread is topped with sesame seeds for that little bit of extra flavor and interest.

You’ll find all the details, the main recipe, instructions, and the info for being a Bread Baking Buddy this month at Bake My Day.

You’ll find all of the various ways the Babes were creative on the individual blogs below.

Have some fun!

  1. Aren’t we the best purse designers? Yes to the za’atar and soft cheese, or labneh, or halloumi….or or the fried egg…dipping in olive oil or butter…
    Thanks for the round up again Katie! You’re the best keeper of the clan!

  2. How fun is it to see all these great ‘purses’ hanging on the poles. Wonderful to see them all together. Thanks Katie!

  3. Look at all those beautiful handbags! I cannot believe that we haven’t yet tried hanging our lunch from our bicycle handles!

    I suddenly have an urge to use grilled eggplant with yoghurt mint sauce as a filling….

  4. Tanna, so many choices…. all summer to plan picnics

    Karen, the Babes are the best at whatever they try!

    Lien, they are all beautiful. Now I crave street food

    Elizabeth, really – or at least hang one on for a snack when you’re out running errands. One can get a bit peckish….
