Multi Grain CrockPot Bread
Did you know you can make bread in your crockpot? Yes you can make bread right in the crockpot. This is actually fun to make and doesn't take that long.
What you need:
1 TBS yeast
1 TBS honey
1 cup warm water
1 cup all-purpose white flour
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 TB Flax Seed
2 tsp chia seeds
1 TBS white sugar
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs olive oil
Extra water to bring the bread together (1/2 cup or so)
3 paper towels
How to make it:
Mix together warm (not hot) water, yeast, and honey, and let sit for a minute for
yeast to foam
Stir together flour, sugar, salt, and then mix with yeast mixture and olive oil
Stir together with a wooden spoon
Knead for 5 minutes, either by hand or with a stand mixer and hook attachment
IF the bread doesn't ball up slowly add up to 1/2 cup of warm water while mixing till it
makes a bread dough.
Line a crock pot with parchment and place ball of dough in center
Put paper towels over the top, and put the lid, very slightly ajar over that,
this will help absorb some of the moisture so the top of your bread is not mushy
and wet while the bottom is crispy and hard.
Cook on high for an hour and a half, or until bottom is browned (You can just
lift it out with the parchment to check how brown the bottom is)
Remove from crock pot, put on a baking tray, and into a preheated oven set to
broil on high. Broil 2-3 minutes or until you reach the desired golden brown.
