    I like a good savory bread, but not too much in a cake. I am a sweet cake person

    I love eating savory foods and even desserts with savory elements but I must admit I haven't yet taken my baking in that direction.

    Does garlic bread count?

    Just kidding :)

    The only savory baking I've tried were some cheese and chive muffins. I had some from a local bakery and they were really, really good. So when I had some extra chives I gave it a shot myself, but they were not as good :/

    Yum...yes those count zlemune. I haven't had it in years, but used to make a stuffed bread (with pepperoni). Sort of like a calzone, but the pepperoni was cooked in the bread.

    I think a decadent focaccia with meats, cheeses and veggies would be considered savory. I also want to master an entirely made from scratch pot pie with stew beef, vegetables and SAVORY gravy.

    I love baking savoy breads. I enjoy adding cheese and fresh herbs to bread dough to dress up traditional boring loaves. Stuffing bread is also something I like to do. I like to roll out the dough to as flat as possible, then put in the stuffing. You can use whatever you like for stuffing , try meats , cheese, broccoli ,sun dried tomato's. Next roll the bread in to a loaf and let it rise again , place in pan and bake.
