Make sure the bread is freshly baked

We often get asked how to properly freeze a loaf of bread, we are here to share with you how we personally go about it. First and foremost, it is very important to purchase a fresh loaf of bread before starting the freezing process. Here at BeNanna Bakery, we value to provide freshly baked goods, baked in-house daily. It’s a standard that is very important to us for our customers to enjoy the taste profile of a freshly baked bread while we also prioritize top quality ingredients!

We always provide a great selection of fresh artisan bread to pick from daily, from traditional sourdough to multigrain sourdough. Fresh baked baguettes, whole wheat breads , danish rye and more! 

Freeze bread for ultimate freshness

We recommend freezing the bread the same day it is purchased.  If this is not feasible, keep the bread out of the fridge in our paper bags for 2-3 day. Afterwards place the remaining bread in our plastics bags for freezing. Danish rye bread are the exception and do well in the fridge. 

Freezing a loaf of bread the day it was baked, ensures it’s fresh every time it is defrosted. When defrosting, it will smell like a delicious bakery in your home and most importantly, it will taste like you baked it right that minute. The bread slices can easily be separated from the loaf with a bit of pressure or with the help of a butter knife. Feel free to use a toaster or oven to defrost, you can also spread butter on the frozen slices and put it straight on the frying pan for a delicious grilled sandwich!

Sliced bread and plastic bags are essential

Make sure to ask us for a plastic bag for the freezer and to have the bread sliced.  Having the bread sliced before freezing will ensure you can defrost one slice of bread at the time rather than the whole loaf. Most of us can’t finish a whole loaf of bread, it’s the perfect opportunity to save money by avoiding food waste and keeping the bread fresh for days to come. It is very usual for bread to go stale after a few days if left outside on the counter, due to bread being full of starch. The longer the bread sits out after being baked, the stiffer it’s texture becomes. Also, the bread will be good for a whole month if frozen, this is why so many like to freeze certain baked goods.
