I have made homemade bread for years using this homemade bread machine bread recipe. Just mix up those ingredients and let the bread machine do all the work for you!

Then I got to thinking about my other small but mighty kitchen appliance – the crockpot! Surely I could make an easy and yummy homemade bread with that marvelous appliance. This recipe is proof that it is possible!

While you can absolutely make a great homemade bread in the oven, try this recipe in your slow cooker. While I do love my bread machine I know a lot of people don’t have them because they seem like an unnecessary appliance. I don’t know one person without a slow cooker though so test this recipe yourself and see how it turns out!

Slow Cooker Bread Ingredients

  • 3 cups, Flour
  • 1 tsp, Salt
  • 2 tsp or 1 packet, Yeast
  • 2 tbsp, Sugar or Honey
  • 2 tbsp, Oil
  • 1 cup warm (not hot!) Water

Slow Cooker Bread Directions

  1. Measure flour into large bowl.
  2. Add salt, sugar and yeast and mix together well.
  3. Add oil and water.
  4. Stir with a spoon until it gets stiff and sticky.
  5. Work the dough with your hands (occasionally scraping dough off your fingers) until it forms a nice ball.
    If the dough stays too sticky add a bit more flour (1/4 cup at a time). If it gets too dry add a bit more water (teaspoon at a time).
  6. When the dough forms into a good ball, scatter flour on you work surface and turn out ball on to surface.
  7. Knead dough for 5-6 minutes.
  8. Line crockpot with parchment paper.
  9. Place dough in crock pot and cook on high for 1 – 1 1/2 hours. You will need to lift bread out with the parchment paper to see if the bottom is browning.
  10. When bottom is browning, place loaf under broiler for a couple of minutes to brown top.

Here are a few questions I have seen people ask about this recipe:

Can you bake in a slow cooker?

Yes, you can bake in a slow cooker! Depending on the type of recipe, I have made bread (obviously), cakes and more!

How can I tell when the bread is done?

When you pull the bread out after the slow cooking time, the bottom should be brown.
