Cutting Homemade Bread

Even though it is tempting to cut into that fresh bread warm from the oven, it is better to let the bread cool first before cutting. Cutting bread while it is still warm can cause the bread to have a gummy texture, and the loaf can collapse.

If you just love that warm bread taste microwave or toast your slice before eating.

  1. Or…. we serve a warm loaf and break it instead of cut for dinners where the bread is the bowl-cleaning mop for soup or sauce.

    Sandwich bread, though, definitely needs to be cooled before cut!

    Great tip :)

    This is so true and sad…when I make bread I make several loaves and pick the smallest and “ugliest” to slice into hot…then I get the fresh from the oven taste and still have nice bread to use for sandwiches and stuff when it cools. Best of both worlds in my humble opinion! :)

    Boy it is hard to let it cool! Mmmmm warm homemade bread! Now I must make some!

  4. I agree with Leah! Nothing is harder to resist than bread that’s fresh out of the oven.

    Speaking of keeping bread feeling and tasting right, bread kept in the fridge goes stale about four times as fast as it does at room temperature. http://www.kitchensavvy.com/journal/2006/11/where_to_store_.html.
