    Question about bread dough....

    I use a bread machine to make my dough, but use the oven to bake it. Living alone, I find that the loaves too big and end up wasting a lot. My queston is this: is it possible to halve the dough and freeze it? If so, how long will it last in the freezer.

    Hi! I'm the same! I only use my bread machine to make the dough! It's so much more satisfying baking the bread in the oven isn't it? And, YES! I'm almost certain that you CAN freeze dough - though this doesn't answer your question - YES or NO! I'm sure I recall reading a topic about this very same subject some time ago, and the answer was "YES!, you CAN!" - hopefylly someone out there will be able to verify this.

    Cheers, Karin (bread-baker!)

    Yes you can. Let it defrost and rise in the same greased bowl. then shape, put in bread pan and bake as usual

    You can freeze the dough--or the bread. If doing the dough, put in a plastic bag, put in the refrigerator for an hour or so, punch down (it tends to keep rising for a bit), then freeze. Remember it's going to take a lot longer for frozen or cold dough to rise.

    Or you can make 2 smaller loaves (that's what I usually do). I wrap one in foil, then put it in a ziplock bag, squeeze out as much air as possible, seal and freeze. For optimum quality, frozen baked goods should be used within 3 months. At this very moment, I have 4 loaves of bread in my freezer for Easter dinner--all I'll have to do is thaw and heat up and everyone will think I was baking all day to put out such an assortment.

    If you don't mind, I will also share some of mine. This thread brought back memories of an oven for me and I love to make bread. My mom taught me everything I know about it and passed her recipes on to me. I don't get to bake at the moment but I still have the recipes anyway.

    A holiday favorite when I was growing up. Mom used to boil and mash up her own pumpkin, but I use the canned.

    We used to sit at the table cracking those nuts you can buy at Christmas in the shells to make this bread that was a tradition in our house and will be again when I get an oven. Such conversations we had cooking together. That is where I learned about what boys and girls should learn at that age. I just knew my mother knew everything. icon_smile.gif
