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.

  • 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.
  • 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)
  • Let cool completely, and slice!
