Would you like to make fresh bread but don't have time. This recipe doesn't require any kneading! It takes only 15 minutes to prepare for baking and then you'll use your large crock pot (I use a large oval 6 qt pot) so you don't even have to heat up your kitchen. I found this recipe on www.justslowcooking.com and think it's just fabulous. The dough is very soft so you may be tempted to add more flour but resist the urge. You're going to end up with a loaf that's coarser in texture than bread that has been kneaded before rising and baking. Made sure that the loaf pan or casserole dish is well oiled and that there is room for the bread to rise. Also, it's important that you refrain from opening the lid of the crock pot until at least 2 hours have passed. If you don't have a trivet that can be placed in the bottom of the crock pot you can crumple up some aluminum foil and place your loaf pan on that. As of July 16, 2010 I made a very minor change to the recipe. I've had no problems with it.
