No-knead bread in a slow cooker






Last week I tried making no-knead bread in the slow cooker using these instructions. I tested the temperature of the bread with a thermometer (180°F) because it was hard to tell if it was done (it took longer than the instructions mentioned, probably because I used more dough). Then I browned the loaf under the broiler for a few minutes.

The crust is softer this way, and you don't have to let it rise. I'll definitely be doing this again!

  2. Do you use your slow cooker a lot? There are a ton of them for sale at the thrift store I go to, and I'm thinking of getting one. Any good websites you recommend with recipe ideas?

    1. I actually don't use it a ton, but I'm trying to learn more about it. It's really nice for when you're gone all afternoon and want to come home to something hot for dinner. I stumble upon many recipes through Pinterest or the blogs I read; there are also tons of slow cooker cookbooks.
