How should I store my Butter Braid products after baking?2018-03-16T12:02:06-05:00

Generally, this isn’t something most people have to worry about since they disappear rather quickly! But, in the case that you have some left over you may store them covered at room temperature for 2 to 3 days.

How big is my braided pastry supposed to get?2018-03-16T12:02:06-05:00

An average sized braided pastry after rising will be approximately 5 in. wide by 2.5 in. tall by 13 in. long. We have seen many larger than this and some smaller. It is highly dependent on the freezer storage conditions, room temperature in which the pastry is rising, etc. We recommend a room temperature of 70° F.

A frozen braided pastry, on average, is approximately 2 in. wide by 1 in. tall by 9.5 in. long. So, the size of your braided pastry will more than double in width and height at the end of the raising process!

Don’t try for a world record here and let your pastry raise for too long! After a certain point in the raising process the yeast becomes so expanded that it will “fall” much like a rubber band that can no longer stretch. If that happens, it’s nothing to worry about, you’ll just have a flatter pastry than normal.

How many people will my braided pastry serve?2018-03-16T12:02:06-05:00

We recommend sharing! A braided pastry (with filling and icing) is 22 oz. in size or 1 lb 6 oz. The recommended serving size is a 2 oz. slice. Your braided pastry should serve eleven, each with a 2 oz. slice.

How long can I keep Butter Braid products in my freezer?2018-03-16T12:02:06-05:00

Butter Braid product shelf life is 6 months from date of manufacture when kept at 0° F or below. We do recommend that you use your Butter Braid products within 6 weeks of receiving it for best product performance.

If product is not used within the 6 month period, product performance may suffer due to aging of yeast. At this time there are no food safety concerns, just product performance concerns. Although we have had many consumers call and let us know how wonderfully their 1 or even 3 year old product performed, looked and tasted, we do not recommend this approach.

How long can Butter Braid products stay out of the freezer.2018-03-16T12:02:06-05:00

Butter Braid products are delivered frozen to fundraising groups. They will stay frozen for approximately 1-2 hours after delivery depending on temperature and other circumstances. Once the product starts to get soft, it must be put back into a freezer.

If the Butter Braid product has started the rising process, (you will notice this if it starts to expand) it cannot be refrozen without affecting the performance of the product. There are no food safety issues if the product is re-frozen during the rising process; however, being a yeast-based product it will most likely not perform as expected when you go to prepare it.

How should I store my Butter Braid products before using?2018-03-16T12:02:06-05:00

Please keep products frozen at all times until you are ready to use them. We recommend storage in a chest freezer at 0° F or below for optimal product longevity.
