Crock Pot Bread

Crock Pot Bread

I bet you didn’t know that you can bake bread in a crock pot.  It is very easy, and totally doable, and totally flexible. You could use a frozen bread dough, homemade bread dough, make rolls, or make a loaf. You are going to want to line your crockpot with parchment paper and use an amount of dough that is proportionate to your crockpot.

We are getting ready for a move, so my smaller crockpot is packed. I used my large crockpot for this recipe, and the bread turned out a little flatter than I would have liked, but still tasted amazing!

Give this a whirl, you will be surprised at how it turns out.  Just remember…DON’T LIFT THE LID while it is baking! Doing so releases the moisture/heat and increases baking times by around 20 minutes each time.

  2. Slowly add water, then oil, and process until dough is no longer sticking to sides, and forms a ball.
  3. Remove dough, form into ball.
  4. Place in greased bowl and cover with a towel.
  5. Allow dough to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  6. Line 4 qt. crockpot with parchment paper.
  7. Place dough on parchment paper, cover, and cook on low for 1½ - 2 hours
  8. Each crockpot varies, so watch it through the lid.It will be pale when it is done, and the outside will be slightly stiff, not hard and crusty.
  9. To achieve a darken/crisp crust, put the loaf on a baking sheet or stone and put in the oven under the broiler for about 5 minutes. (Watch carefully)
  10. Let cool completely, and slice!
