I've made this loaf and variations of it a few times and it's always great, I want to make it for Christmas Day to go with my Parsnip, Bacon & Thyme Soup starter and to save time and hassle want to make the week before, freeze then re-heat on the day itself. However I’ve read many comments on various other sites about how to specifically freeze homemade bread. Do I have to do anything special? One site suggested wrapping while still slightly warm to keep in moisture?
Yes, you can freeze it for up to 3 months.
Is it possible to freeze the loaf once cooked? I've never made before but want to give it a go!
