Crock Pot Bread

I saw an article on how to make crockpot bread the other day and so I decided to try it. I took pieces from a couple different articles to come up with how I was gonna make my bread. I've linked to the originals below. Here is what I did:


1 pouch yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
3 cups flour


Mix water an yeast in a mixing bowl or stand mixer. Add salt, mix. Add flour 1 cup at a time until all is blended. Add a little more flour as you knead the dough or use a dough hook to knead the dough. Once you have a nice dough ball, dust it lightly with flour.

Line the crockpot with a piece of parchment paper and place the dough ball in the center, there is no need to let it rise.

Cook on high for 2 hours (or until internal temp is 190-200). Remove from crockpot and place loaf on a cookie sheet and place in oven for about 5 minutes on med-high broil setting to brown the top a little. Keep a close eye, you don't want to burn it!

Thats it. Seriously. It tastes good too. It's almost too easy!

Next time to try some seasonings, herbs, etc.
