    Cooler weather and I'm getting interested in baking bread again. It just isn't a summertime thing for me. There are only 2 of us and we don't eat a lot of bread so typically I will bake (or buy) a loaf and freeze half.

    I have found that French or Italian loafs - especially the purchased ones don't do well in y freezer. When I thaw it and slice they tend to crumble or be very dry. Oddly enough, when DH shops unattended and brings home Wonder Bread or the like THAT freezes just fine.

    What types of breads do best frozen and thawed.

    I've had success with all of the home baked breads I've made whether enriched or lean ones like French bread.

    Thanks Red! Good to know. I wonder if my freezer is just set too cold?
    I don't have a problem with Sourdough freezing nicely - just the 'leaner' ones.

    Might be set too warm. The recommended temperature in freezers is 0F to -10F.

    Mine is a new one and I had it set at -14
    I just checked and yep, that is the setting.

    Yikes Red. You are likely bang on!
    I checked again and it is set to -14 but that is Celsius not Fahrenheit. icon_redface.gif

    It is only 7f so I need to move it down to -23.
