All Bakers Delight breads are suitable to freeze and can be stored in the freezer for up to four months. Simply place the bread in a freezer bag, remove as much air as possible and seal the bag.
To thaw, remove the seal and leave the bread to defrost naturally in the packaging or alternatively, remove the bread from the bag, wrap in a paper towel and place in the microwave. Microwave the bread on high for bursts of ten seconds, but be careful not to overcook the bread.
Crusty loaves and rolls, such as Pane di Casa, are best stored in a paper bag and eaten fresh on the day they are baked.
Other breads should be stored at room temperature in a plastic bag, bread bag, or well ventilated bread bin, to prevent the bread from drying out.
During hot or humid weather, you can store bread in the fridge.
To revive the crust on bread, place in the oven on a rack. On a second rack, place a dish of water. This will gently warm the bread and make the crust lovely and crunchy again.
