No bakery on your corner? No worries. Bread from your freezer can also be soft and fresh-tasting if you know this little trick.

 

If you grew up in Europe like Renee Muller, then it’s likely your childhood mornings included walks to the bakery to buy a fresh loaf of bread for breakfast.

 

And while there’s nothing like fresh bread (and best of all, fresh pita), we’re not running out each morning to buy freshly baked bread. But even when we do, some of that bread goes into the freezer.

 

So now comes the time when you need to defrost such bread. Defrosting in the oven takes too long and the bread gets a little toasty. What if you simply want it to be soft? Defrosting in the microwave yields a rubbery texture.

 

But with one little trick, your microwaved bread will be soft, as if it was freshly baked.

 

One Trick to Make Frozen Bread Feel and Taste Fresh. No bakery on your corner? No worries. Bread from your freezer can also be soft and fresh-tasting if you know this little trick. Simply wrap your bread in a clean dish towel (when there’s no dish towels to be had, paper towels also work, but a real towel is better). Microwave.

  1. We live “out of town” and only get fresh bread once a week. I always have a stock of rye bread in my freezer to make sandwiches for my kids lunches. I make sandwiches on frozen bread every morning and by the time lunch comes around the sandwich is defrosted and tastes soft and delicious. One morning I happened to have had a loaf of fresh bread and made sandwiches on fresh bread that day. My six year old ask me in all earnestness if you are allowed to make a sandwich on bread that is not frozen!!!! She had never seen it before!
