Crockpot Bread

A simple and affordable bread recipe from Save Make Do.

Crockpot bread


15g dried yeast

4 tsp sugar

2 1/2 cups warm water

2 cups wholemeal flour

pinch salt

4 cups (approx.)

white flour


Put the yeast in a bowl with 1/2 tsp of the sugar. Pour on 1/4 cup of the warm water and leave for 5–10 minutes. Place the remaining water in a large bowl, and mix in the yeast mixture and the remaining sugar. Add the wholemeal flour and salt. Combine using a wooden spoon. Mix in enough of the white flour to make a stiff dough. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding more flour as necessary. Lightly grease the crockpot with oil or butter and put the dough into the crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. The bread is ready when it sounds hollow when tapped.
