The rich, buttery flavor and slightly cakelike texture of brioche bread make it a versatile bread you can serve as a sweet pastry or a savory dinner roll. You can also prepare it in a traditional brioche roll pan, as a loaf, tart or any other shape. If you have taken on the challenge of making brioche, proper storage is important if you don't plan on using or eating it right away. You can choose to either freeze the prepared brioche dough before baking, or freeze the freshly baked bread.

Raw Brioche Dough

Step 1

Prepare the brioche dough according to the recipe.

Step 2

Place the dough in a freezer-safe container after the final rise.

Step 3

Store the container in the freezer for up to 10 days.

Baked Brioche Bread

Step 1

Wrap freshly baked brioche bread tightly in aluminum foil while it's still warm from the oven.

Step 2

Place the foil-wrapped bread in a plastic bag. Tie the ends closed and push out as much air as possible.

Step 3

Seal the bag around the bread tightly with adhesive tape.

Step 4

Place the wrapped brioche bread in the freezer. You can store the brioche bread for up to two months.
