“I found this recipe in After hearing about the problems the first reviewer had I decided to prepare and remake the recipe based on my findings. This is what I've come up with. You may find the timing is off as different slow cookers seem to cook at different temperatures. My slow cooker is an old model from the '70's and took considerably longer. An instant read thermometer is very helpful in determining doneness. The bread should be at least 190F when fully baked. Crock pot breads don't usually have the nice top crust of breads baked in the oven. Their charm is in the ability to have freshly baked bread without heating up your kitchen.”
