Pin There Done That - Slow Cooker Bread

...Slow Cooker Bread…

Well it was a success. However, the end result isn't quite what I was hoping for and left me less than enthusiastic to share. But, there was some curiosity on how it turned out so I thought I'd share. Do note that this was not a complete failure.. the end result was just mediocre for me but I'm also not the biggest fan of bread these days when trying to lose the baby weight. { Especially when your body can not tell the difference between white sugar and a piece of bread, I really want my white bread to be amazingly worth it..} 

Also, I do have to say that this was fun for getting little hands in the kitchen to fill in our wintery afternoons. 
This is the link to the recipe I used… 

Dimples & Delights : Slow-Cooker Bread 

So here is how it went for us…

Line up your helpers. Throw an apron around their wee bellies.

Then measure out all of your ingredients! PS. I keep my yeast in the freezer… It will last longer!

Then follow directions as listed in the link above.

The stirring was a bit tough so two hands were better than one!

Preheat your slow cooker!! And do not be alarmed if it comes out looking very pale..

Now it has to be said that we turned on the slow cooker for the allotted time but something happened with the crock pot and it took about two hours since the bread was cooking on  the WARMING option !!!!!!!!! 
My gf was over to pick up her little kiddles and I was hoping to have a batch prepared for her but that didn't happen…. BUT we had a pretty good laugh when Ry realized that the slow cooker wasn't on the right setting after I commented its taking a little longer than the recipe noted. DUH!!!!

And I have to admit, it was actually quite delicious. A little squishy and plain tasty but thats what you get with white bread. And it had a bit of a sour dough taste to it too which I liked. It went really well with our Bolognese sauce we had with supper that night. 

Give it a shot! It was a fun afternoon activity for the kids and they really enjoyed seeing the dough rise before it went into the crock pot! To them, it was pretty magical! 

ps.. NO JUDGING on the amount of butter i used.. how can you enjoy bread without slathering it in a serious layer of butter.. com'on .
