Bake your own bread

Bake your own bread is a monthly event started in 2009 by Sandy of At the Baker’s Bench. The bread basket has passed from Sandy to Cathy of Bread Experience and to Heather of Girlichef .

I’m happy, this year, the bread basket was passed to me.

BYOB words only

The idea behind Bake your own bread is to encourage everyone to leave that loaf of bread on the store shelves and bake a beautiful loaf of bread in their own kitchen. Quick breads, yeast bread (forget the fear!), rolls, buns, biscuits, sourdough bread, pizza etc.

Homemade bread is absolutely the best! And not only you make it chemical free but it’s cheaper and tastes 100 times better than store-bought one. And let not forget – it was made by you, with love.

I love making my own bread. This love started years ago and with each loaf it gets stronger and stronger. No matter how tired I may be, I always find time to make my own bread. Some people do yoga, some make bread – that’s what I tell when I’m asked when I find the time to make my own bread since it’s not a 5 minutes job. With a little bit of planning and practice anyone can make bread at home.

How to participate (the rules):
1.) Blog about bread.  It can be a post about baking bread in any form (yeast, wild yeast, quick breads, flat breads, sweet, savory, loaves, rolls, breadsticks, tortillas, scones, biscuits, etc.).  It could also be a recipe that uses bread in it or as a base (pizza, bread pudding, etc.).  Or it could be an informative post, a tutorial or how-to post (such as how to make sourdough, bread baking essentials, favorite products for baking bread, etc.).  It could be a review of a bread-making book.  Anything that will inspire us to bake bread at home. If you don’t have a blog and you’d like to participate, please email me a photo of your bread and the recipe and I will create a page for it.

2.) Include a link back to this post or any of the monthly link-up posts

3.)  Please link only posts from the current month.


All submissions will be added to a Bake your own bread Pinterest board.

Also I’ll do my best to promote everyone’s post on other social media channels. I’ll be using the #BakeYourOwnBread hashtag for Twitter and Google+ (feel free to use this to promote linked posts, as well)

    Ha! I can’t stop making fantans! We absolutely adored garlic fantans. But now I must take a look at all the other breads featured here. Many thanks for hosting BYOB, Roxana!

    Hi Roxana,
    Thanks for picking up the breadbasket this year. I tried to add 2 loaves (Russian Dark Rye with Borodino and Jam Fantans), but failed. Maybe you can help me here. I’m the one with the X ad the submissions. Connie of My discovery of Bread

      Hi Connie, you jam fantans are showing up. Could you please re-submit the Russian rye bread? If you still have problems, let me know and I’ll submit it for you :)

    I’m so glad that BYOB is still going! Is there a way that you can add the links for the next months to this post (or the sidebar)? I found it to be a tiny bit tricky to find the February post.

    Many thanks for hosting!
