Herbed Crock Pot Bread Recipe
Did you know that you can bake a beautiful loaf of bread without an oven? Why heat up the entire house when you can just plug your slow cooker?
This soft Herbed Crock Pot Bread Recipe is super easy to make, delicious, and it does not require any rising time. Just knead the ingredients in the mixer and place in your machine. How cool is that?
I gave my bread more flavor by adding fresh thyme leaves but you can certainly switch it out for rosemary, cilantro, parsley, etc. Not a fan of herbs? simply omit them.
Keep in mind that this bread bakes up soft and springy. It is not like the crusty bread I baked HERE. It has a roll like texture. Perfect for spreading butter, jam, or making delicious sandwiches for the lunchbox.
Imagine you’re baking up a lasagna in the oven and you want to serve with a fresh loaf of bread. Since the oven is busy, what to do? Use the crock-pot!
To make the top brown I threw my loaf in the broiler for a couple of minutes, but that’s totally optional. The fact that in less than 90 minutes you can enjoy fresh bread from start to finish is priceless.
Sometimes the easier a recipe gets, the more likely you’re going to make it. Again and again. And since I enjoy baking bread, this recipe will definitely be made every week.
