Knowing that I can preserve my heavenly brioche buns made me the happiest person ever.
Despite the long and tiring steps required to bake these goodies, yet, their life span is as short as any other fresh bakeries.
That’s why, keeping their amazingly soft texture and delicious taste became my one goal. Freezing them was in fact the best way that guarantees a perfectly preserved brioche bun, ready at my hand anytime I want.
In this article I am going to share with you the simplest of ways where you can freeze your brioche buns. Keep in mind, though, the fresher you freeze your brioche buns, the better it is going to taste after freezing.
Brioche bun vs. regular bun
Brioche buns or brioche rolls are more of a dessert than a savoury bakery due to the extra amount of butter and sugar they contain. In comparison to regular buns, they are much sweeter and richer.
The sweet and savoury mix between the brioche buns and the regular hamburger filling is one of the best combinations nowadays. Not many agree on that, yet it is still quite addictive.
How can I freeze brioche buns?
I like to make my brioche buns at the comfort of my own home, adjusting all the ingredients and fillings according to my preference, while also making any quantity I want. If you like to bake your own, the same way as I do, then it is important to keep in mind to never attempt to freeze your brioche rolls or any baked goods while they are still hot.
- Allow your baked brioche rolls or loaf to first cool down to at least room temperature before you attempt to freeze them. Separate the brioche rolls from each other to help them cool down.
- Once they cool down, wrap each loaf of brioche buns separately in cling film or even tin foil, then place the wrapped rolls inside a freezer bag.
- Label the freezer bag with the date of freezing and its contents so that you can easily distinguish them from all the other food placed in the freezer.
How long can Brioche buns stay in the freezer?
Brioche buns can last for up to 3 months in the freezer if they are well wrapped inside the freezer bag. It is still safe to consume after this period of time. However, it might be of less quality than when it was first baked.
How can I defrost brioche buns?
Unlike most of the frozen food, brioche buns can be easily defrosted on the countertop. It won’t take more than 2 to 3 hours for them to fully thaw.
Just remove them from the freezer bag and unwrap the cling film or the tin foil from each one, then place them on a tea towel to absorb any of the extra moisture that will be released that might cause them to become soggy.
