Re-heating frozen cornbread?

claireh Mar 22, 2007 03:13 PM

I made cornbread a couple of weeks ago and stuck half of it in the freezer. I want to have it tonight with gumbo. It is now defrosted, and tastes fine, but I prefer my cornbread warm. Will it survive if I put it in the oven for ten minutes, or will it go dry?

    Make your own steamer,

    Add a small amout of water to a covered casserole or an over-turned bowl on a plate
    -nuke for 10 -30 secs, depending on amnt of water and your micro
    -put c/b in dish or on plate nuke 20-30 secs more depending on portion and micro

    you want the steam before adding c/b or yoit can get over done.

      I will lay it on a cake rack above whatever I'm cooking on the cooktop and put a bowl or pan inverted over it.
      Basicly I'm steaming it gently.

      If it got too dryin the freezer for this to work, turn it into stuffing.

        I think I would sprinkle it with a bit of water and wrap well in foil to reheat so it stems a bit and does not dry out.

          Same concept in the microwave- wrap bread in moistened paper towel and nuke for a few seconds. Course if you want crispy edges, the oven or toaster oven would be better. I do not de-frost first.
