I bought some frozen bread dough (due to time and health reason:ache:) and it started to thaw in the freezer I have taken it out and placed in bread pans does any one know if it will rise so that I can bake it or is it ruined, I am so mad :furious:right now I was going to make bread but have not had time and with taking care of grand daughter I have been dealing with my health issues, so now I am mad at myself for one not just making it myself and to for not taking the bread out earlier this week when I should have so does anyone have any suggestions or help or know if the bread will rise.... sorry about the rant just really upset right now.

I don't see why it wouldn't still rise. Every frozen bread I've dealt with said to thaw on the counter and it'll rise. Don't feel bad for not making your own either. After the free $10 from Schwans I seen in the catalog they sell 3 loaves for 4.99, that will be my next purchase from them!

Why was it thawing in the freezer though? I'd have that checked out!

Thanks for the kind words, I am trying to let it rise and it seems to be, my DS put it on the bottom of the freezer and not the top 2 shelves it seems that the bottom does not freeze as well it is an old freezer I keep hoping it won't just quit on me I bought the bread also because my DH grandma used to make it, that was her secret bread recipe I am just hoping by tonight I can bake it, its 106 here today and my ac can't keep up so it is warm were I have it so it should rise, keeping fingers crossed, at least the kids will more then likely eat it. they will eat anything lol... thanks again for the nice words made me feel better

Good job :)

I think you can also roll the bread dough out, and then cut out doughnuts and fry them up .

Keep an eye on the freezer.
Years ago, we had one that had problems similiar. Stuff on the bottom shelf defrosted and stuff on the top shelf was just fine. Only maybe a few months old. Took it back to the store where we bought it, and got a different one. I had not opened it in about a week, so I had one nasty surprise when I did open it. It sounded normal running. I had no clue it done got stupid.

you can roll out small pieces and deep fry and make elephant ears like you get at the fair. Sprinkle with a little cinniamon and sugar..Good

If your freezer isn't keeping a temperature of 0°F or colder, then you have a bigger problem. Thawing and refreezing can promote bacteria growth and can alter the texture of foods. You may also find different areas in your freezer that are colder than others. If your freezer won't keep a container of ice cream "brick hard", then you may need to have it serviced.

Place an ice cube in a zip-lock bag and place it in the freeze to check to see if the temperature is going high enough to thaw foods. If the freezer gets warm enough to melt the ice cube, you'll be able to see that in the zip-lock bag, even if it refreezes.

thanks for the advice grainlady DH checked freezer it keeps everything frozen except on the bottom were you drain it when you defrost it I also think since its on the back porch (no heat or ac) that when it gets to hot it just can't keep up with keeping the bottom that cold. we have had ice back there and it keeps it frozen so I don't know what happened this time.
