How to Keep Your Baked Goodies Fresh Longer
Nothing beats the taste of freshly baked goodies such as cookies, brownies or bread. However, you may not always be able to enjoy them as fresh as they came out of the oven every time you want to. Bakeries would do everything to assure you that the baked goods you get from them are oven-fresh but it happens that they will still go stale and lose their delicious taste once they are exposed to air for some time. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to revive the fresh taste of your cookies and breads at home.
To keep bread, cakes or cookies fresh, add half an apple to the container where you want to store them. The moisture present in the apple will help maintain the moisture in your favorite baked goods, so that they are kept soft and nice looking for a longer time.
Cakes and bread can be frozen wrapped in a cloth towel. The towel extracts the moisture from the baked goodies thus allowing them to be kept longer in the freezer. Never use paper towel as it will only disintegrate and not do its work. If freezer space doesn't allow you to wrap the cake or bread fully, covering them with a cloth towel will work as well.
