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.

Lemon and lime dishwashing powder

Lemon oil has an amazing ability to cut through grease, making it the star ingredient for this recipe. The method is simple, all you’ll need is a handful of basic ingredients and a jar to mix up.

Cinnamon-baked pear chips

I just adore this recipe for baked pears, enhanced with a sprinkle of sweet, musky cinnamon, baked until crisp. Try them with a sharp, salty cheese such as blue vein, or a gentler, creamy cheese like double cream Brie or Camembert.
