Slow Cooker Bread Recipe


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (around 110°F)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of honey or sugar for added flavor


  1. Mix the Dough:
    • Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
    • Gradually add the warm water and mix until a sticky dough forms.
    • If desired, add honey or sugar for extra flavor.
  2. First Rise:
    • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a damp cloth.
    • Let the dough rise at room temperature for about 1 to 2 hours or until doubled in size.
  3. Shape the Dough:
    • Flour your hands and shape the dough into a round loaf.
    • Place the shaped dough on parchment paper.
  4. Preheat the Slow Cooker:
    • Turn on your slow cooker to the “High” setting.
    • Place the lid on to preheat the cooker.
  5. Bake the Bread:
    • Carefully transfer the parchment paper with the dough into the preheated slow cooker.
    • Cover with the slow cooker lid.
    • Bake for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. The exact time may vary depending on your slow cooker model.
    • Use a digital thermometer to check the bread’s internal temperature. To ensure it’s fully baked, it should reach 200°F (93°C).
  6. Final Touch:
    • Once baked, remove the bread from the slow cooker and let it cool on a wire rack.
    • Slice and enjoy!


  • You can experiment with different types of flour (whole wheat, rye, etc.) for variations.
  • Add herbs, seeds, or grated cheese to the dough for extra flavor.
  • Adjust the baking time based on your slow cooker’s performance.

Slow cooker bread won’t have the same crust as oven-baked bread, but it’s a convenient way to enjoy fresh homemade bread. Happy baking! 🍞

Note: Always follow safety precautions when using kitchen appliances.
