Bread is a staple food in almost every household, it can be eaten at any time you prefer, and you can also incorporate them into any food or ingredient that you want. It is commonly cooked in an oven or if you’re making some pancakes, then a frying pan will do, but did you know that you can also cook bread in a crockpot? I was surprised and immediately impressed when I learned this because this is super convenient for those who love bread but don’t actually own an oven. But, whether you own an oven or not, you must try this version by In The Kitchen With Matt on YouTube with your crockpot because it’s delicious and soft, plus, it’s super easy to prepare.
Heat up some water in a bowl until 100-110°F, then add a pinch of sugar followed by yeast, and then let it rise for about 5-10 minutes until foamy. Reserve 1 cup of flour, then add the rest to the yeast mixture along with the remaining sugar, salt, and oil, and mix them together until it turns into a tacky dough. Transfer it to a lightly floured surface, then knead the dough for about 8 minutes, and then place it in a bowl lightly greased with cooking spray.
Cover the bowl, then set it aside to rise for an hour or until double in size, and once risen, form it into a ball. Line the crockpot with parchment paper, then place the dough in the pot, cover it, and allow it to rise for another hour. Turn the crockpot onto a high setting, then allow the bread to bake for 2 to 3 hours until nice and golden brown, and the internal temperature reaches 200°F or 93°C. Once done cooking, remove the bread from the crockpot, then transfer it to a wire rack, and let it cool completely. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
