Hello and welcome back to In the Kitchen with Matt, I am your host Matt Taylor, today I got an excited little episode for you, I am going to show you how to bake bread in a crock pot, what? Yes a crockpot. Let’s get started. All right first we need our bread dough, I have a couple of loaves here ready to go, here is a short little video on how to make the bread dough. All right I let these rise a second time, and now they are ready to be baked. This one I am going to bake in the oven traditionally for 25 to 30 minutes, at 350 degrees F. And this one we are going to bake in a crockpot, and then we are going to compare the two. So what you do is you get yourself a large Crock Pot, and if you don’t have a large crockpot, what you can do is, put parchment paper in there, and then just put your dough right in there, so it will resemble, it will resemble one of the round loaves, as opposed to the sandwich loaf. All right then we just put our dough right in there like that, ready to go, then we turn it on high, we put the top on and then we let it bake for 2.5 to 3 hours. Until it is nice and golden brown on top, all right time is up, let’s go ahead and take a look, ha ha, look at that. Bread cooked in the crock pot. All right now with oven mitts I am going to go ahead and come in here, grab my bread, all right I am going to go ahead and take this loaf out of the bread pan here. All right and then I am going to point out some differences right away, so the side there got more crispy or more hard on the sides, this is the one that was in the crockpot, this is the one that was baked normally in the oven, a little bit browner on the edges here, nice little crust, a little bit softer, pretty cool, now look at the tops, as you might expect this one looks like a normal loaf of bread, this one got these little ridges, what you might expect from the steam inside of the crock pot cooking the top. Now let’s cut into them and see what we can see. First let’s start with our normal loaf, take my bread knife here and I am just going to cut the end, look at the inside, it looks really good, it looks like you know how bread should look. Give this a little taste, mmm, now let’s take our crockpot bread, same ingredients and everything, same dough, cut off the end here, a little crispier on the edges, and a little bit different texture on the inside, a little bit more brown, here is the difference, I probably could have cooked this a little bit less time, that’s pretty cool thought the difference. Let’s give it a taste, taste really good the outside crust is nice and hard the inside is really soft, really cool. All right our crock pot bread is done, it turned out amazing, now there are some differences as I showed you, between this loaf and the loaf that was baked traditionally, in the oven, the crockpot loaf has more crispy or crunchy edges around it, and it turned out the color was just a bit different then the other one, but it still tastes really good, so there you go, if you don’t have an oven, or your oven is not working, make your bread in a crockpot. It is really easy to do, if I can do it you can do it.



  1. Why do you add so much sugar to bread? Bread is just flour and salt in its most basic form, and tastes better that way than any other. I just do not understand this fascination, mostly American but in other countries too, with adding so much sugar to absolutely everything.

    I love the idea of cooking bread using a crock-pot as an oven; really great idea! Makes me think that some other dishes that were formerly cooked in the old Dutch Oven by the fire can be ported over to cooking in the crock-pot as well. I'll have to try a few.

    P.S. Did you know that Bed-Bath-and-Beyond appears to be using parts of this video in a commercial of theirs? At least it looked just exactly like it anyway, right down to the black crock-pot, three hour cook time and slicing the bread. Thought you might want to check it out if you don't know anything about it.

  2. Thank you for this video! I was wondering if I could do the baking without using a pan, just putting the dough in the crockpot , maybe in low instead hi temp? My crockpot is small and a pan does not fit inside!

  3. Can 100% Almond or Coconut bread come out the same if cooked in a Crocker pot slow cooker..??? I can't have all the sugar 🚫🍚and wheat flour 🚫🌾 What modifications would you do..??? Have you ever tried using Almond or Coconut flours..???

  4. that was really interesting. I thought you had to put some liquid in the crock pot, but you just inserted your bread in the pan straight on "high" – and I am amazed that the inner stoneware pot did not crack or break! Wow! You sure taught me something – thank you!!! 🙂

  5. thank you this is perfect I live in a motel with my 3 kids with no kitchen surviving off of a griddle a Crock-Pot and a coffee pot , and I didn't know there's so many good Crock-Pot ideas out there I'm glad I have one 🙂

  6. It's easier and better made in a digital bread machine. Just dump, set and forget. No mess, kneading or heating up the kitchen. I bought a great Hamilton Beach bread maker for $40.00 on sale at It makes several types of breads and cakes, plus jam.


  8. I plan on baking a no-knead bread in my small crock pot. Here is a tip ; Put a paper towel just under the lid. That
    way the steam won't fall back onto the dough. Thanks for the idea of crock pot bread!

  9. I have to admit that I liked the look of the oven baked one rather than the crock pot one; however, they both turned out well. Baking bread in a Halogen Oven is also great, and turns out just as it would in a conventional oven. 🙂

  10. Thank you for sharing! The oven loaf looks tastier and more like a loaf of bread should look. I would eat the crockpot loaf too but maybe use it for grilled cheese sandwiches or something of that nature. Making croutons out of the crockpot bread would be great too!

  11. I've made it, with the parchment paper and it is good. A little different than the usual, but great if you want bread that you don't have to watch so closely.
