Can this bread be made and then frozen to reheat at another time? If so, when should baking take place, before or after freezing? Thank you :)


Hi Lorna, if you are going to freeze it, do it after baking it, place the bread pudding in a few freezer bags and perhaps some plastic wrap as well. I don't recommend freezing it as there will be a bit of frost on the bread pudding, and there’s no way around it.
