Commonly Asked Questions

How long can I store bread?

Usually, store-bought bread can be stored in the pantry or the refrigerator for at least a week or more. However, for homemade bread like this copycat recipe, it will only take a couple of days. If you’re fortunate, your bread will last to at least 5 days in the pantry, and a week in the refrigerator. However, if you want to have these rolls in-stock, you can freeze them after forming them into their final shape. Then you can just take them out to thaw and bake whenever you crave them!

Can I bake the rolls ahead?

Yes. However, as we have mentioned above, you have to be mindful of the duration in which you’re going to store your bread. We recommend serving it immediately. You can also freeze them which can keep them good for about a month. After baking them, let them cool completely and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Then, place them in an air-tight container and into the freezer. Thaw for 30 minutes before reheating!
