When I first heard about this method for cooking bread from Stephanie O’Dea’s blog,it was literally a ‘mind-blown’ moment – imagine being able to cook bread without any rise-wait-punch down- wait-rise-wait-cook nonsense. A method for bread that just about babysits itself without calling for my arch-nemesis, the bread machine? I was in, hook, line, and sinker. After trying about ten of our bread recipes, I can safely say that any bread recipe in our archives can be made with this method. The picture you see is of my new high fiber loaf bread, but I have been successful with all sorts of loaves. Follow the instructions, and the humidity and gentle heat of the slow cooker will take care of your bread baking for you with amazing results. To be honest I FAR prefer this to even using my brod and taylor proofer and the oven, especially for loaf breads. It’s just a million times easier, that’s why.
