Slow Cooker White Bread

  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 (8 g) package active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 ½ cups bread flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil 
  • milk

    1. Pour 1/2 cup of water into crock pot and preheat the slow cooker/crock pot on High with the lid on.

    2. Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of the lukewarm water or milk with the sugar and set in a warm - not hot - place.

    3. Put the flour in a large bowl and sprinkle with the salt.

    4. Make a well in the centre.

    5. When the yeast is bubbly, pour the rest of the water or milk, the yeast mixture, and the oil into the well.

    6. Stir with your fingers (I use a soup spoon) until all the flour has been absorbed.

    7. Grease a deep metal or glass bowl 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).

    8. Brush milk with a pastry brush over the top of the bread.

    9. Cover loosely with a plate and let stand for 5 minutes in a warm place.

    10. Place on a trivet in the slow cooker, cover the cooker, and bake on High for 2 to 3 hours.
