How to make Bread in the Crock pot
In a large bowl, mix together the water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and stir. Let sit for 15 minutes, until the surface is foamy.
Add the salt, olive oil, and oregano and basil & Mix well.
Slowly add the flour and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes, until it is no longer sticky. Make sure you take the time to knead it for the time frame. This activates the gluten nicely and ensures you get a fluffy interior with a nice crust outside.
Set the dough in the middle of a piece of parchment paper large enough to line the slow cooker.
Place the parchment paper with the dough in the slow cooker.
Drape a kitchen towel over the top and cover with the lid.
Set the slow cooker to warm and let the dough proof for about 30 minutes, until doubled in size.
Check occasionally to make sure the dough is not cooking.
Lift the parchment paper to remove the dough from the slow cooker.
Sprinkle a bit of flour on a clean surface. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, then shape it into a ball that will fit in the slow cooker.
Place the dough back on the parchment paper and return to the slow cooker. Sprinkle the top with salt, basil, oregano and parmesan .
Cover the slow cooker with the towel and the lid and cook on high heat for 1½-2 hours, until the bread has a thick, dry, white crust
Preheat the oven to 400°F
Using the parchment paper, transfer the bread to a baking sheet (keep on original parchment paper)
Bake for 20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
Let cool for about 10-15 minutes
Slice and Enjoy!

Have you tried this with whole wheat flour?
No but I’m sure it would work just fine. 🙂 I will try to get my hands on some whole wheat flour to see if it works but I can’t see it not working.
