overnight bread or loaf

[English] plural overnight loaves

Overnight bread is made with less powerful yeast and the bread is raised overnight. It is occasionally thought that "overnight" bread means that it was made yesterday and sold today, making it rather unpopular. This is far from being the case. Bread which is raised overnight has a complex flavour, wonderful aroma and has good keeping qualities. Hobbs House Bakery in Nailsworth makes an overnight bread called the Sherston. The loaf was named after the village in which the grandfather of the present baker lived, using his recipe.
