This is a very flavorsome bread that’s baked in a slow cooker! It uses a special bread and cake baking dish that comes with some brands of slow cookers.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups scalded milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in the vegetable oil, honey and salt; let cool until lukewarm. Preheat a 3 1/2 or 5 quart slow cooker and lightly grease the appropriate baking dish.
  2. 2 Pour the lukewarm milk mixture into a large bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the milk. Mix in the all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour in 1 cup at a time. Beat well until the dough has pulled together. Place dough into prepared baking dish. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. 3 Place dish in slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours, or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Place on wire rack to cool before serving.

  2. This bread had a great texture and easy to slice. I used parchment paper to line my crock pot which made it easy to remove when done. Did not need a special bread pan. I think it would be 5 stars if it was just a little sweeter.
  3. This bread was way too easy!! It turned out great. I cooked it for 2 hrs in the slow cooker and didn't use any special pan. It was a bit overdone on the edges. when I do it again, I will cook it for less than 2 hrs. It looked kind of like an artisan - Read more ...
  4. Good bread. I didn't bake it in the slow cooker bc I was using mine, so perhaps I'll try it that way next time. I just made a regular loaf of bread in a bread pan--baked at 375 for 40 mins. Came out perfect, a dense whole wheat that is good for toast. Thanks for - Read more ...
  5. This is a good recipe! Really liked the nutty taste of the whole wheat flour with the honey. I will try it again. I changed the recipe to 8 servings as my crockpot was 2.5 quarts instead of 3.5. Had a hard time telling if the bread was done and over cooked it a little - Read more ...
