Slow Cooker Basic White Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Pour 1/2 cup of water into crock pot and preheat the slow cooker/crock pot on High with the lid on.
  • Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of the lukewarm water or milk with the sugar and set in a warm - not hot - place.
  • Put the flour in a large bowl and sprinkle with the salt.
  • Make a well in the centre.
  • When the yeast is bubbly, pour the rest of the water or milk, the yeast mixture, and the oil into the well.
  • Stir with your fingers (I use a soup spoon) until all the flour has been absorbed.
  • Grease a 2 quart mold and place the bread in it. (You can use a coffee can, a casserole dish or a loaf pan, whatever will fit inside your crockpot).
  • Brush milk with a pastry brush over the top of the bread.
  • Cover loosely with a plate and let stand for 5 minutes in a warm place.
  • Place on a trivet in the slow cooker, cover the cooker, and bake on High for 2 to 3 hours.
