There’s nothing I like better than a thick slice of warm, fresh-baked bread, with a slightly melting pat of butter slathered all over it. YUM. Yes, I’m drooling a little bit right now!

The problem is that I used to hardly ever get to enjoy homemade bread right out of the oven. I mean, who has the time? Or the energy? Even without having little kids around, I don’t find that I have enough spare time to really think about baking my own bread on a regular basis.

That is, until I figured out how to use my slow cooker to bake bread. And, *BONUS*, these instructions require absolutely no kneading!

I make this bread for myself and hubby, but also for the whole family when the kids are around. Everyone loves this bread! (You can also find this recipe posted as a guest post on Bless This Empty Nest’s sister website, DizzyBusyandHungry.com.)

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 slices
Author: Kristin
Ingredients
  • 3 cups bread flour (you can substitute regular white flour in a pinch)
  • 1 teaspoon quick rise instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 and 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (short cut-use jarred minced garlic)
  • 1/8 cup cornmeal to prevent sticking (you can substitute flour if you don't have cornmeal)
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, garlic salt, and Parmesan cheese.

  2. Measure the water, then add the minced garlic into the water. 

  3. Add the water into the flour mixture and combine until all the flour has been incorporated. (Note: the dough will be very sticky)

  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and allow to sit for 1 and 1/2 hours.

  5. On a large piece of parchment paper, sprinkle the cornmeal (or flour), the dump the dough onto the paper. Form the dough into a round , sprinkle with some additional cornmeal, then cover with plastic wrap. Allow to sit for 1/2 hour.

  6. Preheat the slow cooker for about 5 minutes on high, then remove the plastic wrap, pick up the parchment paper with the dough on it, and place it in the slow cooker. Tuck or trim the edges of the parchment paper if necessary to fit under the lid. 

  7. Place a layer of paper towels over the slow cooker, then place the lid on top of the towels.

  8. Cook on high for 2 hours, then remove from the slow cooker.

  9. If more of a brown crust is desired, bake at 400 degrees in the oven for 15-20 minutes (optional).

  10. Cool on a rack before serving.

  1. Wow, this threw me off when I saw the blog name and then your picture. Congratulations on starting the new blog! While I love your other blog, I really like your focus here too. Cooking for 2 is definitely different than cooking for a family.

    I have never done bread in the slow cooker but now I must try it. Luckily we are almost out of the loaf in the bread box and this will save me a trip to the store.

    1. Thank you so much, Audrey! I forgot how much work it is to start a blog, haha! I hope the bread turned out well for you, I have had lots of luck with this recipe. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Oh my goodness! I’ve never thought of making bread in a slow cooker, but it looks incredible and super crusty – wow! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday!

  4. I have made a couple of bread recipes in my slow cooker and it really works. I use a foil collar and then a round on the bottom too to keep the bread from browning too much. Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday.

  5. It looks super yummy! Thanks for sharing with SYC. I’m sure it’s not intentional, but I’m not seeing a link back to the party.
    hugs,
    Jann
