Bread Love

This was baked in the crock pot.  Really.  Not as crispy as when it's baked in the oven, but wonderfully soft, much easier, and way less mess.  And it doesn't heat up the kitchen like the oven does.  Too cool.

A friend of mine Pinned this idea on Pinterest (If you haven't been there yet, don't go.  Really.  You'll thank me later when you start hearing from all of your friends how much time they're wasting on the site).  The authors of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day blogged enthusiastically about the method.

Waiting for the heat
If you haven't tried the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day because it seemed complicated and you didn't have all the stuff you need to bake it with, then this is the way to do it.  Even though I have all the stuff and the technique, I'm not sure I'll be baking our bread in the oven ever again.

  1. You can put the loaves in the broiler for a minute or two to crisp the top. I just checked Healthy bread in 5 min a day out of the library. Whole wheat rather than white flour... gonna give it a try today. Gonna have to use the crock pot because our one and a half yr old oven is not working....argh.
