The Roundup! Wild Rice and Onion Bread–> Bread Baking Babes May 2014

The month of May, my turn to host the Kitchen of the Month. For this recipe I looked up Peter Reinhart’s revised recipe of Wild Rice and Onion bread as it appears in “Artisan Breads Every Day”. My first loaf wasn’t that much of a success but my oh my… that second and third… (adding fried onions in the second and caramelized onions in the third) sure was a hit! Following are the Buddies who took the challenge and run with it. Enjoy!

Robin at A Shaggy Dough Story is a first time Buddy and a novice blogger dedicated to bake good bread and I am very proud to have her baking with us. Fabulous looking bread with a golden crust! Who needs more?


Karen added Wild Rice and Onion to her Kitchen Stories. Turns out this bread was on her to-bake list for a long time, well… consider it done (and well done!) She used wild rice and flaked dried onions.

This is Paola, to be found over at Le Mie Recette con Esenza, a lovely golden crust and using kamut as part of the flours! She used brown rice instead of wild rice and caramelized onions in her version.

And here’s Carola blogging at Sweet and that’s it!. She is in the midst of an house overhaul… and still found time to bake and blog! Dedication I say!. She says: we had the floors redone, .. Unpack-clean-write blog - unpack-clean-write blog...

Claire (or rather Claartje Knipogende emoticon) sends us this beautiful bread from Scotland. Her experience wasn’t the best of yet but I think it certainly is a winner in looks. (and do click over to see that cute black lab!

Look at that!! Sunita added dried cherries to her version of this bread! (See… told you it was such a versatile dough!) She tells her story at My Foodlab, go on over!

Renee’s tale of this particular bread is all about diversion and shortcuts and turned out a gorgeous loaf… which I love!Take that recipe and go make it your own, so that’s what she did in her Kudo’s Kitchen.

Now look at this one and the one above… how similar are they? These two are baked by Sandie and her post is to be found @ Crumbs of Love!

Soepkipje turned out such gorgeous loaves without the added sugar and reducing the yeast (as we all did in this one haha, there is such thing as too much yeast in bread) and I would love to show you her picture but … either there is something wrong with me or with the picture itself but I have so much difficulty transferring a pic from Ipernity to here.. so sorry Rita, if you would like me to send the pic in a mail I will gladly add it here. Until then I’ll add the link to it:

So… this is it for this month! I really enjoyed reading what you did with the recipe, love to see your diversions and omissions. And most of all looking at this diverse array of breads, small and large, in rolls and boules. Simply wonderful and I really would like to thank you all for participating this month and being a true Bread Baking Buddy!!
Thank you!
