BBD # 19 - Spring Country Breads Round up

Here we are with the final round up: 48 entries from 12 different countries! I am flattered!
It's been a hard and long work but I eventually made it. Thanks again to Zorra for giving me the chance to host such a great event and a huge thank to all of you for sending in such wonderful breads! It's been real fun for me to meet each and every one of you, and I did like to read your lovely, funny, interesting, yummie recipes and stories, and hope to try some time!

Well, no more words but enjoy your round up!

Alessandra - Con le mani in pasta
from Ancona, Italy

Casatiello di Alexs: a characteristic Neapolitan festive bread stuffed with salami, cheese and hard boiled eggs.

Panini al latte: a very soft dough for funny buns to be filled with whatever you like most, sweet or savory.

Asha - Aroma!
from NC, Usa

Spring Onion, Bacon and Cheddar Bread: a wonderful loaf to slice for the picnic but also lobvely if toasted with butter or on the side with a soup.

Suzanne - La Belle Aurore
from Querétaro, Mexico

Sundried Tomatoes Bread: very crispy outside, full of flavour inside, enjoy with a glass of Shiraz!

Priya - Priya's Easy N Tasty Recipes
from Paris, France

Eggless Chocolate Zucchini Bread: an incredible mix for a bread, zucchini and chocolate, with yogurt, condensed milk and almond flakes... it does intrigue me a lot!... and you?

Soma - eCurry
from Texas, USA

Velikonocni Kruhki: Slovenian Easter Buns: traditional buns blessed in Zegen baskets on the Holy Saturday. Slightly sweet, with almond powder, raisins and wonderfully spiced with cardamom.

Aparna - My Diverse Kitchen
from Goa, India

Velikonocni Kruhki – Slovenian Easter Buns, eggless: it's always interesting to see the same recipe coming out in a different way, everybody has a personal touch! Aparna had these festive buns with cheddar cheese and cardamom, her favorite spice, matches wonderfully!

Tartasacher - Mil postres (1000 desserts)
from Spain

Pan trenzado de aceite de oliva -Braided olive oil bread: ideal for breakfast and brunch. The recipe is in Portoguese but a Google Translater is on the right sidebar.

Jude - Apple Pie, Patis, and Pâté
from Chicago, Illinois, Usa

Potato, Cheddar Cheese, and Chive Bread

I learned from Jude not to throw away potatoes' cooking water, it helps softening the crumb and makes the crust more thin and crusty. I bet you would serve it with a side of sour cream and bacon aas Jude suggests too.

Natashya - Living in the Kitchen with Puppies
from Canada

Dilled Petits Pains: lovely cute buns of French Bread spread with dill, the best for hamburgers on a BBQ picnic! Nat gives directions to shape the same dough in different loafs and breads.

Jamie - Life's a Feast
from Nantes, France

Savory picnic quick bread with smoked chicken: from the first thing crossing her mind for a picnic (a sandwich with chicken, veg, cheese, fresh herbs) an amazing idea of mixing all together and
bake it in one loaf! ... surprisingly gorgeous!

Strawberry Pecan Muffins: strawberries are spring for me and these muffins are extraordinary tastefull!

Jamie has lived in Italy, France, Usa and in her posts she tells about all the places she visited and had a picnic with her family. Beautiful vintage pictures.

Vanesuky - Vanesuky entre Fogones
from El vendrell, Tarragona, Spain

Panecillos de leche - Milk Buns: lovely soft buns you would desire to have warm every morning for breakfast! Recipe is in Spanish but Google Translator is on the left sidebar.

Stefanie - Hefe und Mehr
from Germany

Pain d'Epi: for a special day spent in the garden with parents! And a clever idea to adapt baguettes to a small oven: cut them baguette five times on the right side and turn every second pices to the left side. Aren't they nice?

Zorra - 1x umruehren bitte aka kochtopf
from Andalucia, Spain

Chive Knots: our "charming President" has chive blooming in her garden and as flowers are edible too, you could add some in the dough!

Jan - Jans Küchenleben
from Stuttgart, Germany

Mini-Focaccia mit Pilzfüllung - Little focaccias stuffed with mushrooms: sorry, but the recipe is in German, need to find a translator

Zaira - La cocina de Zaira
from Spain

Trenza de pan de semillas de amapola - Braided poppy seed bread: a soft plait, I would like to have on my table every morning!
The recipe is in Spanish but a Google translator is on the right sidebar.

Ila - Bread&Wine
from Krakow, Polonia

Dandelion bread: a suprising smell and taste for this bread! You should read Ila's words about the power of this bread, which sensations and fragrances she feels inside.

Lien - Notitie van Lien
from The Netherlands

Pizza Muffins: very lucky muffins! ... Lien has been "5 minutes saved" but... just in case you might see a policeman writing a ticket for your car... better have some deliciuos muffins to offer him!

Glenda - Domesticated Engeneer
from Wichita, Kansas, Usa

Easter Basket Bread: a family tradition, well made by Glenda with the original recipe from either her high school days or her first job, long ago, but still up to date!

Yasmeen - Health Nut
from Cleveland, Ohio, Usa

Savory Scones:we usuallu think about sweet scones, but this savory version with fresh greens and lightly sweet carrots sounds so good and lovely as well! Yasmeen suggests to serve warm with favorite beverage: green tea, coffee or chai.

Gea - Koekje van eigen deeg
from The Netherlands

Cheese Grissini: looking at them, would you say Gea was not baking for a long time? She is very busy moving into a new house but she has not forgotten how to bake, has she?

Abbhirami - Soulful Creations
from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Usa

Fresh Pineapple-Zucchini bread: extravagant but deliciuos combination!

Stefania - Buoni e veloci
from Milan, Italy

Nancy - The dogs eat the crumbs
from Usa

Stud Muffin - Italian Cheese Bread from Rose Levy Beranbaum: Nancy gives such a nice description how to make this bread, a variation of an Italian Easter bread from Perugia, which needs to relax on a pillow!

Simran - Bombay Foodie
from Mumbai, India

Pesto Rolls: lovely and tasty rolls, but be sure to prepare pesto just a little time earlier or you could not have enough for them... and find somebody else with a full belly!

Alisa - Jane of many trades
from Nashville, Tennessee, Usa

Sun dried tomato flatbread: a spring combination, a nice and refreshing green salad with some warm flatbread. Dinner is ready!

Jacqueline - Toxo Bread

Laura - Tiramisu'
from Bay Area, California, Usa

Tomato Cheese Tart: this galette would be super in summer, when tomatoes are at their fullest. Surpsisingly, it's made with no yeast at all!

Cristina - La cucina di Cristina

Pizza e focaccia pugliese: same dough and same ingredients for two different preparations.
Pizza is with tomato sauce and mozzarella, focaccia with fresh cherry
tomatoes and kitchen salt.

The recipe is in Italian, English and Romanian.

Shelly - Adventures with the Woods

Parmesan Herb Batter Bread: a sort of focaccia with cream cheese spread on top. Super!

Judy - Judy's Gross Eats
from Ventura, California, Usa

Springtime Breads: Judy is lucky! Living in southern California she can have dinner outdoor quite all year round and one of her favorite food is hamburgers, grilled to perfection and served on homemade buns!

Andrea -You Eat Now
from Phoenix, Arizona, Usa

Cocodrillo Ciabatta: a sort of quick No-Knead Bread, and it s an amazing bread! But who knows why it's called Cocodrillo? Maybe because you follow a direct method, so you can be lazy like a crocodile and still make a delicious rustic loaf in one day with no advance planning? Whatever the answer is ... it is super! Look at those big holes inside!
