  • frozen bread dough in the crockpot?
    I thought I saw a thread on here one time about thawing or rising bread dough in the crockpot overnight (I think) to use later. Does anyone use their crockpot for frozen bread dough? And what exactly do you do? I think it would be a great time saver! Thanks!

    Hi there, here is the recipe I use. My crockpot only takes 1 1/2 hours to rise and 1 1/2 to bake so the first time make sure you keep an eye on it!

    Frozen Crockpot Bread


    Using your crockpot to thaw and raise frozen bread loaves gives it a
    beautifully brown crusty exterior while filling your home with the
    comforting scent of homemade bread.


    1 frozen bread loaf
    butter flavor non-stick cooking spray
    Generously grease frozen bread loaf and baking pan with non-stick cooking
    spray. Place loaf in pan and place pan in crockpot. Cover and heat on LOW
    2-3 hours until bread is thawed and starting to rise. Turn to HIGH; bake 2-3
    hours until loaf is brown and tests done.

    That would take a pretty big crock pot wouldn't it? To put a loaf pan in it?

    The 6 qt. oval crockpots will hold a loaf pan.

    I just read back through the replies on it, and it seems you don't put a pan in the crock. She is calling the crock insert the pan. So where it says 'pan' assume 'crockpot'

    Hi there, sorry I really didn't read this, I just do it automatically now. I do not use a loaf pan, I just grease the crock and throw the frozen loaf in. Good luck, K

    I made this this afternoon and had some questions about it, but Footsie wasn't here so I just followed the recipe. Footsie, should I have put water in the bottom of the crockpot before putting in the soufflé dish? I didn't and it didn't break. The dough was a quite soft, like a thick batter and I didn't know if I should add more flour. I didn't but should have. It was a tiny bit sticky and flowed over the side of the dish a bit. Next time I will add enough flour so it is a very, very soft dough, but not a batter. It had a coarse texture and really good flavor.
