Can you freeze bread dough, and if so when?
By Shirley from Burstow
Shirley, yes I freeze my homemade bread dough. I make it in the bread machine, set on dough and when it is finished I take out and put in pans according to what I want, I make mostly rolls, so I freeze in cupcake pans then move over to freezer bags, that way I can take one or 12 out at a time to bake. You can also freeze in the bread pans, just would take longer to defrost for the 2nd rise. I then bake. I have a wonderful recipe from a cookbook in the 40's, that I make my yeast rolls from and it works very well in my breadmaker, if you are interested, I will post.

Can all bread dough be frozen for future use? I like to make honey wheat bread from scratch, which has no white flour. At what point can I freeze the dough for future use? Also, can you make rolls out of your favorite bread recipe or dough?

I freeze bread dough before the final rising. Make sure it is wrapped securely in plastic wrap then in foil. Write the date on it. When taking out of the freezer let it thaw, then place it in pan and let it rise in a warm place. Then bake as directed.
Yes you can make rolls from bread dough. Just form dough into equal size ball. let rise and bake.
I love the taste of homemade bread, but don't have a bakery in town. I'd like to make bread dough in advance, freeze, and bake as I need it. I'm looking for recipes that freeze well; length of time that the dough keeps in the freezer; as well as instructions as to when to let rise, when to freeze, and all of that. Thank you for helping me!
