Slow Cooker Bread

This will keep your kitchen cool in the summer. This bread tastes great as is or toasted.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2 1/2 to 3 hours

Total Time: Up to 3 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 1 bread

Source: Adapted from recipe in Whole Foods for the Whole Family by La Leche League



  1. Grease your coffee can. You can also use a deep metal or glass bowl.
  2. Dissolve yeast in water.
  3. Combine with the warm liquid of your choice, oats, salt, oil, honey and wheat germ.
  4. Add the flour.
  5. Knead until smooth and elastic. This will take about 5 minutes. You may have to add more flour on a humid day.
  6. Turn the dough into the coffee can or bowl. Cover loosely with foil. Make sure the foil is loose.
  7. Put 1/2 cup of water and a trivet in your slow cooker. You can use crumpled up pieces of foil if you don't have a trivet.

  9. Cover the slow cooker. Bake for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The top of the bread may not brown.
  10. My slow cooker is too shallow to cover the coffee can. I covered the cooker with a towel, and added more water to replace what evaporated through the cooking process at several intervals.

  11. Remove from can and cool on a wire rack.

This looks awesome. Does it have a texture similar to English muffins?

It's denser. It's a very satisfying bread.
