OLIVE OIL CROCKPOT BREAD

May 16, 2014

A crockpot made loaf of bread sounds like such a neat trick. But also wild. So wild that the first time you try it you may be in disbelief it will work. But it does!

Now that the weather is getting warmer, and once we’re into the dog days of summer, I will love having freshly baked bread without heating up the whole oven (and thus house).

PS: If you can stand the (brief) heat, I like to run my bread under the broiler just to get it nice and golden.

Remove dough from bowl and knead slightly on a floured surface, forming a round ball. Return to bowl and allow to sit for 20 more minutes. Meanwhile, line crockpot with two strips of parchment paper (forming a cross). Place dough on parchment and cook for 2 hours on high.

    Dumb Question— What type of flour? Self-Rising? Cake? All-Purpose? I am assuming All-purpose since there is yeast?

    • Rachel Schultz

      All purpose :)

  • Lynn

    Looks too easy!!

  • Tiffany

    Could I sub coconut oil for the olive oil? I am thinking about adding some rosemary.

  • What a cool idea for fresh bread! I will have to try that!

  • I really want to try this! I love bread so much and this seems so easy and delish!
