If your slow cooker is equipped with a special cake dish, you can bake this honeyed whole-wheat bread in the crock pot! The result is a tender, moist loaf your entire family will enjoy.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups scalded milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in the vegetable oil, honey and salt; let cool until lukewarm. Preheat a 3 1/2 or 5 quart slow cooker and lightly grease the appropriate baking dish.
Pour the lukewarm milk mixture into a large bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the milk. Mix in the all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour in 1 cup at a time. Beat well until the dough has pulled together. Place dough into prepared baking dish. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Place dish in slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours, or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Place on wire rack to cool before serving.
