    Default Freezing Bread Dough

    Ok, I used to make a lot of homemade breads for our family. Well life got in the way and now we are in the process of moving to our new home this coming week. Once things get settled I am planning on getting back into the routine of making my breads.

    I used to bake my bread and then freeze it. However, I know you can freeze the dough once the first rise has done but my problem was that before it actually froze, the bread would start rising in the freezer.

    So my question for you is this...
    How to I freeze my dough and get it frozen before it starts rising? As I take a loaf out to thaw during the day it can do the second the rise at that time, but in my old case I would have a mountain size loaf because it was already partially in the rise state as it froze.

    Any help please!!???!! Thank you in advance.

    What kind of yeast were you using when this happened?

    Try retarding your dough in the fridge before you punch it down and shape it.

    Also, don't waste any time getting it into the freezer. Have your wrapping ready to wrap it as soon as you have it shaped, and pop it in the freezer IMMEdiately!
