For Cakes: If you are interesting in keeping the cake fresh after baking, keep refrigerated or frozen. Then allow them to reach room temperature or warm them slightly in the microwave (about 10 seconds) or a toaster oven (a few minutes) before eating.
For Cookies: Due to the amount of erythritol in our cookies, they may become dry if left out for a few days. This is because erythritol is not as “hygroscopic” – meaning that it does not retain moisture as well – as sugar. To prevent moisture loss, keep baked cookies covered tightly. Cookies can also be pleasantly softened with just 5-10 seconds in the microwave.
For Breads: Because our bread mixes are rich in fiber and tend to retain moisture, they are best kept loosely covered with ample air circulation (for example, a bread box… and not a zip top bag). This will prevent loaves from becoming “sticky” or moist. Keeping the bread refrigerated will also help retain freshness. Toasting to your preference may also improve the taste and texture.
For Pizzas, Muffins, Waffles and Pancakes: These foods do well stored in the refrigerator, loosely covered. They can also be wrapped airtight and stored in the freezer long term.
