Easy Crockpot Bread Recipe

Easy #Crockpot bread ready in just 6 steps!

If you have been around the site any length of time, you know I use my Crockpot a lot! I have made almost everything in it over the years, even desserts, but one thing I have never made in the slow cooker is bread. The simple recipe makes the most delicious bread, and the best thing is, you don't have to watch it, just mix the ingredients, dump it in the crockpot and forget it. That is the magic of the Crockpot.

Ingredients:



3 cup Flour
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp or 1 packet Yeast
2 tbsp Sugar or Honey
2 tbsp Oil
1 cup warm (not hot!) Water

Directions:




Step 1 Measure flour into large bowl. 
Add salt, sugar and yeast and mix together well.

Step 2 Add Oil and water. Stir with a spoon until it gets stiff and sticky.



Step 3 Work the dough with your hands (occasionally scraping dough off your fingers) until it forms a nice ball. If it stays too sticky add a bit more flour (1/4 cup at a time). If it gets too dry add a bit more water (teaspoon at a time).

Step 4 When it get a good ball, scatter flour on you work surface and turn out ball on to surface. Knead dough for 5-6 minutes.




Step 5 Line Crockpot with parchment paper. Place dough in crock pot and cook on high for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. You will need to lift bread out with the parchment paper to see if the bottom is browning.

Step 6 When bottom is browning, place loaf under broiler for a couple of minutes to brown top.

I've never been a huge crock pot user but this is a neat idea. We make homemade bread and rolls as often as we can.

I made this bread today. It came out incredibly delicious! I used honey not sugar. After it was done in the crockpot I stuck it under the broiler for 3 minutes to brown the top. Perfect.
