Thaw, raise and COOK your frozen bread in the crock pot! Great for those without bread makers. Found on a geo-cities site.
- Generously rub oil on frozen bread loaf.
- Place in greased baking pan.
- Place pan in crock pot, cover and heat on low 2 to 3 hours, or until bread is thawed and starting to rise.
- Turn to high and bake 2 to 3 hours or until it is brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
- It should be a beautifully brown crusty round loaf.
My loaf pans didn't fit inside my crockpot, so I amended this recipe a bit. I used Rhodes frozen dinner rolls (9 of them) inside a 1.5 quart stainless steel bowl. I tossed the rolls with olive oil, Italian seasoning and grated parmesan cheese before placing them in the bowl, then followed the timeline of the recipe. These were great little pull-apart rolls. Would have been perfect with soup or a pasta dish, but hubby ate them all as a snack. LOL I had wondered about the rolls browning in the crockpot, but the oil does the trick during the last 20-30 minutes. These were very good and will be made again.
This recipe is great, easy to make, convienent, and economical. The bread is wonderful and fun to prepare. I sliced a piece while it was still hot and ate the bread with some butter that was melting. MMMM! I love bread. Thanks for sharing.
Intriguing way to bake bread that I just had to try! This turned out very well. I let the dough rise on low for 2 hours exactly, and let it bake on high for 2 1/2 hours. It was perfectly baked inside and nicely browned on the outside. I used a loaf of white bread, so I was a little suprised that the interior of the bread was a light brown when baked, like the color of wheat bread. My loaf pan did not fit in my medium-sized crockpot, so I used my large crockpot. When trying this recipe, make sure you check that your loaf pan will fit.
