How to Freeze Baked Bread

If you like to be organised and always have a loaf of bread to hand, or can't quite get through a whole loaf before it begins to go stale then this is a great time saving tip to freezing a baked loaf.


  1. Step 1:

    It is important to ensure that your loaf is fully cooled before freezing.

  2. Step 2:

    It is easier to pre-slice your loaf beforehand as it tends to have a crumblier texture after being frozen. Also, if you won't use the loaf all at once you can wrap each slice individually so that you only need to defrost a slice or two as and when you want them.

  3. Step 3:

    Double wrap the loaf or slices in cling film or tin foil to protect your bread from freezer burn.

  4. Step 4:

    It is handy to date your wrapped loaf before freezing and consume within 6 months.

  5. Step 5:

    When it comes to eating your loaf, remove from the freezer and allow to thaw.

  6. Step 6:

    For that fresh baked feel, wrap your loaf in tin foil and warm in the oven on a low heat (170°C) for 10-15 minutes.
