Recipe for Frozen White Bread

The mention of homemade bread gets everyone excited. Serving it  hot out of the oven will delight your family and win you accolades. . That’s great, but we all know baking bread takes time. With this recipe,you can spend some time making the dough and freeze it to bake later.

I had a question about whether you can freeze bread dough? The second part of the question was if you can, how do you do that. If one person asked the question, I decided that there are others who would like to know about how to make frozen bread as well.

Make Bread the Easy Way

If you want freeze your bread dough you mix the dough as usual and then after a  short rest, form it into loaves, and pop it into the freezer covered with saran wrap just until it freezes hard. Then you take each loaf out of the pan and put it into a plastic freezer bag and keep up to four weeks.

When you are read to use it, put it in a greased bread pan, let it rise, it may take several hours to rise and thaw. Once it has risen, put it in a preheated oven  (350 degrees) and bake about a half an hour. When light brown, brush with melted butter and bake about another five minutes until it is golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on rack.

I want to let you know that not all recipes freeze well. I will post other freezer recipes for you to try. I would love to hear what you think. I also want to let you know that I welcome your questions and comments. If you have a favorite recipe you would like to share, please let me know that and I will share yours here too. Enjoy

    Carol,
    You are most welcome. I will post a couple more soon. Here is an idea for marketing your bread. You might want to consider some little referral reward for spreading the word. Also some cute hang tags on the bread can do wonders to get attention.

    Thanks for the recipe.  I am anxious to try it.  I read on line that you need to double the amount of yeast when freezing bread.  Although I currently work full-time I hope to be able to sell bread to co-workers and friends and thought if I could freeze dough it may help if I have a big demand for homemade bread.
