It’s fitting for September.
The dog days of summer are over; the temps are cooling (or so I hear) and people are starting to get ready for the cold days ahead.
Why not go a little crazy first?
And make Pull-apart Bread; aka Tear and Share.
Does the ‘Wild’ in the name mean that one does not need utensils to … Continue reading.....
The alliteration almost writes itself with this one.
Sourdough Sunshine Loaf
It’s shaped like the sun and made with a blend of rye and white flours for a golden, sunny color.
Okay, I’ll admit it…. when I looked at the first Babe’s post I thought it was meant to resemble an octopus.
Then I read on. A loaf shaped … Continue reading.....
Red Ribbon Bread!
Okay, that’s not the actual name of the bread. But it won a red ribbon (second place) in the County Fair for sourdough breads.
The actual name of the bread is:
Rosemary Raisin Sourdough Bread
Judy, of Judy’s Gross Eats, our host kitchen for the month, was the red ribbon winner.

Happy Anniversary Babes!
It’s hard to believe, but this bodacious band of baking Babes have been baking bunches of bread and buns for 11 Years!

It sounds … Continue reading.....
Well. we are the Bread Baking Babes, not the Bread Frying-in-Hot-Oil Babes.
Although, now that I think about it, there are some in our ranks who do tend to get in a bit of hot water…. Still, not oil.
And we are such a health-conscious lot we would, of course, bake our donuts.
At least there was yeast.
Pat, of … Continue reading.....
Egg Bagels, to be precise.
I love bagels.
When I lived in the US the supermarket I used to shop in had a bagel section in the bakery with all kinds of sweet and savory bagels. Every week I bought too many…. And ate them all.
I have never seen a bagel here. I’m sure they exist but not in … Continue reading.....
Filipino Spanish Bread Rolls.
It almost sounds is if these delicious treats have an identity crisis,
The Philippines used to be a Spanish colony so it’s only natural that most of their cuisine, including bread, has a Spanish influence.
Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month says she has no idea why this particular … Continue reading.....
