Freshly baked bread is undeniably wonderful. The steam as it pours out of the first slice, the warmth gently melting butter into its nooks and crannies, the soft texture as you bite into it... but who has the time?
Well, now, you do. This easy no-knead slow cooker bread recipe is perfect for bread lovers with busy schedules. No need to plan a day ahead. Start this bread earlier in the day and have a warm freshly baked loaf ready by dinner.
The recipe is for your basic bread, but once you are familiar with how your slow cooker handles baking bread, you can do it with any of your favorite dough recipes.
Pro tip: Slow cookers with a lot of wear on them might bake unevenly. Simply remove the insert and rotate it 180° halfway through to get a more even bake.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
