Bread Restoration How to Reheat Bread without Making It Hard

Smelling freshly baked bread always brings us back home. It brings back fond childhood memories. The taste is otherworldly. These mental images may be enough for you to search for the nearest bread bakery near me.

Unfortunately, we cannot always have fresh bread. We may have a nearby bakery, but you might have several stale pieces of bread in your ref. If you are tempted to throw them, please do not do that.

We have tapped into the expertise of those who make homemade cinnamon rolls and other delights while making this blog. They have given us their secrets on how to reheat bread.


We admit that we like to hoard, especially if we know that the place creates fine quality products. This principle works with bread too. When we know that the nearby patisserie sells decadent Norwegian bread, we might have bought more than we can eat in one sitting.

Oh, and we do not want anyone to eat our prized loaf. How do we get rid of stale, old bread? Reheating it would be a great option.

We can use an oven to reheat bread. You might doubt this because reheating bread will often make it even harder, but fret not! This blog contains a special technique for reheating bread without making it hard.

Your first task is to preheat the oven to 200-degrees or a warm setting. Get a clean towel and make it damp. Then use this damp towel to cover the bread.

Again, the towel must only be damp and not soaking. Now place the bread into the oven for about five minutes. It will soften the bread.


An excellent way to reheat bread is to place the container and line it with two layers of paper towels. Like what we did in the oven, we will wrap the bread with a damp towel.

Heat the bread for ten seconds on a low setting. After which, flip the bread to reheat it thoroughly. You will get wonderfully warm and soft bread.

What if I Have a Crispy Bread?

It would be best to reheat the oven, but this time put it at 250-degrees F or 300-degrees F. Instead of wrapping it with a damp towel, sprinkle some water on top of the bread. Please note that you should not soak the bread. Just sprinkle enough water to make the top slightly damp.

Frozen Bread

You can store your favorite bread inside the freezer. Doing this will ensure that the bread will last for six months. When you are craving bread, you can take it out and use it.

If you are reheating a frozen loaf, put it on a plate uncovered and microwave them for fifteen to twenty minutes. Please put the microwave on high power when doing this.


There is no reason to discard a loaf of bread because of the date on the package. You can still enjoy them even if the bread is not fresh. You reheat the bread, and it will taste as good as the day you bought them.

If you have ran out of Norwegian bread, you should order some from Ana’s Norwegian Bakeri. We have gotten our recipe from our grandmothers, so that you can enjoy our baked delights. Do not waste another minute, order one now!
