RUSTIC CROCK POT BREAD


This Rustic Crock Pot Bread is proof that making a delicious loaf of fresh bread in your crock pot couldn't be easier!  Who knew?!



If there is one thing on the dinner table in our home that is never, ever turned down, it's bread!  There's something about a hunk of warm bread with a pat of butter that lends itself to almost any meal.  I'd say we literally eat bread with our meal 6 out of 7 nights a week.

Rustic Crock Pot Bread
Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients

1 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon olive oil

Instructions

In your stand mixer bowl with the dough hook attachment, mix the yeast with the warm water.  Let sit for 5 minutes until frothy. 
Add the flour and salt to the mixer bowl and mix for 5 minutes.
Coat the top of the dough with the olive oil and flip in the bowl so the whole dough ball is coated with olive oil.  Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and let sit for 1 hour.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, fold dough over itself once, and form into a round ball.  Score the top of the loaf in a cross shape.
Set your slow cooker to high heat and line with parchment paper.  Place the dough in the center of the slow cooker and cover.  Cook on high for 2 hours.  Using a thermometer, check the internal temperature of the bread.  Bread is done when the temperature is 190-200 degrees.  Broil for several minutes to brown, if desired.

Notes

If you have fresh herbs on hand, mince and add to the dough with the flour and salt.
