Announcing BBD #2: Bread with Fruit

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Blogging Event

If there’s one thing that’s in season all around the world right now, it’s fruit. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we’re enjoying berries, peaches, and all of the goodness summer has to offer. Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere aren’t quite as lucky – since it is winter there, their fruit choices are more limited, and they’re enjoying winter fruits and preserved (frozen, canned, dried) fruit. In the grand scheme, though, everyone can access fruit in one form or another.

One thing that we all have in common is our passion for baking. And this month, I’d like you to include fruit in your bread recipes. It can be any kind of bread (yeast, quick, etc) and any kind or form of fruit (fresh, dried, preserves, etc). So the guidelines are simple. It has to be a bread and it has to have fruit in some form. Let your creativity guide you! Use your farmers markets for inspiration. Most of all, have fun and bake something delicious!


How to participate?
Bake a bread with fruit, take pictures (if possible) and blog about it between now and Sunday, 1st of August 2007. Please include a link to this announcement and eventually a link to the round-up. The round-up will be posted in a few days after the 1st of August.
Send an email to columbusfoodie(at)gmail(dot)com with the subject “BBD #2″ including
- your name
- your blog’s name and your blog’s URL
- the recipe name and the post’s URL
- your location
- for non-English posts, the language it is in
- if you’d like a pic included with your submission, please include it in the email. I can resize it.

I believe that Zorra is still looking for people to host, so if you would like to host one of the next breadbakingday, send me an e-mail to kochtopf (at) gmail (dot) com.

Also, please feel free to use the banner in your posts, which mgb was so kind to make. Just right click on it to save it.

  13. Bread Baking Day 2: Krintstuut « Willkommen in meiner Chaosküche Says:

    [...] Bread Baking Day 2: Krintstuut The topic for Bread Baking Day #2 is “Bread with fruit”. My impression is that in Germany, bread with fruit almost is immediately called cake. The only things I came up with entitled bread were Fruit Bread, which I think is more a Christmas thing here and which I actually do not really like, Banana Bread, which I already recently tried, and bread with raisins.

  18. Wild Yeast » Cherry-Pecan Bread Says:

    [...] I was delighted when I learned the theme of BreadBakingDay #2, hosted by Becke of Columbus Foodie, was Bread with Fruit. What a great excuse to bake, again, one of my favorite breads: 50% whole wheat, with dried sour cherries and toasted pecans. The earthy flavor of whole wheat, the tartness of the cherries, and the slightly sweet spiciness of the nuts combine to make a bread that is always a hit with my family and friends. [...]
