How should I store this bread I baked?

Asked by TexasDude (25229 points ) June 23rd, 2011

I baked some Mexican beer bread earlier, and I’m wondering how to store it to keep it fresh. I put jalapenos in the dough before I baked it (the kind that come in a jar) and I’m wondering if they will spoil or somehow go bad if the bread is not refrigerated.

Thanks in advance.

…Additionally, I’m aware that bread tends to get stale when it is refrigerated.

Looks really good. I’d put it in a plastic bag but not in the fridge. The jalapenos were pickled, right? Even without, it’ll be good for a day. But, wait, you don’t live where I do, where you need a sweater at night, put it in the fridge.

@faye so I should bag it up and put it in the fridge? The jalapenos were pickled. I only have to keep it fresh until tomorrow, because I’m bringing it to a friend’s parents.

I would because it is so hot where you live, or wrap it in tinfoil and fridge it. Recipe, maybe?

TexasDude's avatar

@faye I may try the tinfoil. It gets around 85 or so during the day, but its always cool in the house… 69 degrees or so.

The recipe is as follows:

3 cups self rising flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
¼ cup sugar
3 kinds of hot sauce
Pickled jalapenos
12 ounces Corona Extra beer
all mixed in a bowl and baked for 45 minutes at 375 and basted with melted butter mixed with tabasco sauce when there were 3 or so minutes left.

yummm @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard thanks for the recipe….

@faye haha, enjoy, it’s really tasty! Very spicy, though, which is just how I like it. I made a sandwhich with it, but it would probably be really good with chili.

@blueiiznh, no problem, happy to share!

Wrap it in a paper towel and store it in a cloth bag in the pantry. That is how my great grandmother stored all the bread she made, including the cinnamon raison bread. She baked once a week for the entire week.

The bread was good until it was cut, then had about a day to a day and a half of freshness. She lived in eastern Ky.

@WestRiverrat awesome. I’m gonna go with that. Thanks!

Hold it between your knees?

I think it will be fine overnight for your dinner scene tomorrow. If you put it in the fridge it will ruin the fresh baked taste and texture. No. It’s fine for 24–36 hours.

@Coloma sweet, thank you dear.

Following, because I am too tired to write the recipe down. Tomorrow.

Looks good!

If all else fails, store in the best possible way: In. your. belly!

@MyNewtBoobs I would if I wasn’t giving it to my ladyfriend’s parents who have been without power for the past three days due to storms and living in the boonies. Didn’t stop me from eating a quarter of the loaf today, though :D

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Wow, I don’t have the kind of self control. Congratulations. Hope everyone ends up ok!
