Questions & Replies

  1. Is it safe to assume that there should be a small amount of liquid I the bottom of the slow cooker? I'd be a little worried about a potential fire hazard if not. No kneading? And it's still edible? Every no knead yeast bread I've attempted was like eating bricks, so I am excited to try, but need a little more info.


  1. This is a really nice whole wheat recipe. Like Chef on the Coast I can't find my massive CP so I followed her instructions and they worked like a charm. I will make this again because this is the only whole wheat recipe that has ever worked for me. Made for CQ 2017.

  2. Just color me pleased and amazed. This was the first time that I've made bread in the slow cooker. It was perfect for summer. I needed to make bread today but the temps have been really high and I wasn't looking forward to turning the oven on. Lauri to the rescue! The bread came out wonderfully risen, fully baked with a very nice crust. Add to that the fact that it tastes great and we have a 5 star winner.
  3. This is a very easy and flavorful bread. No kneading and it rises in the crock pot, it couldn't be simpler. I didn't have quite enough whole wheat flour left so I ground up some oatmeal into flour and topped up with that. I used my large oval crock pot with a 1.6 L casserole. The only problem I had was some condensation dripping on the top of the bread. I had to place a toothpick under one side of the lid and bake it a bit longer to dry out the top. Next time I'll use the toothpick for the whole baking time to prevent this problem. Made for Kittencal's Kitchen Crock Pot and Rice Cooker Game.
  4. Made this for Kittencals Blog Tag Game. I had a bit of a problem with this as I used the biggest Slow Cooker I had which I thought was the biggest available, but none of my pans fit it correctly, even my bread pan, but tried it by raising the bread as high into the cooker as I could without it touching the lid. Needless to say it took longer to cook than 3 hours,it went over the sides of the loaf pan, someone put their fingers through the top making it not rise the way it should, and ohhh my goodness like what else could have gone wrong with this? Well darn it anyway, at least the flavor of the bread was good, and next time gonna cook this in the oven. Live and Learn!!! Would post a pic of this, but don't think anyone needs to see it, when I make it again tomarrow in the oven I will post a good pic.
  5. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! DH and I loved this bread! I didn't have time to use the crock pot but I will try that sometime in the future. I made my dough into 4 smaller loaves. Just delicious warm out of the oven with honey-butter. Thank you Lori! I will be making this bread often!!
