One Hour Slow Cooker Bread Recipe

Baking bread can be a time consuming task, I've dabbled here and there and came up with some good tasting breads without a bread machine. But, I honestly just don't have time for that right now.  A few months ago, I picked up cookbook that was right by the checkout at my local drugstore called "Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly" which is packed with low fat slow cooker meals.  We've tried quite a few of them, but there was one super awesome one that I'm glad to have incorporated into my regular go-to recipes when time is crunched or I am in serious need of getting to the grocery store (which seems to happen quite often I might add).

Slow Cooker Bread #Recipe

The original recipe is called Parmesan Garlic Quick Bread, but I've made an even simpler version of it. One change that  I've made is to avoid adding the three spices it calls for and swap those for just an Italian seasoning.  Like shortcuts? Then, you'll like this quick bread! The best part is that it only takes an hour to make! Um sweet!

What makes the bread work? Bisquick! Yup, tried and true.  

I won't exaggerate and say this is the best bread you'll ever have, but it sure is a great comfort food when you want to serve a little something fun with your meal.

It's really flexible too, you can basically add any combination of seasonings or cheeses to make it more exciting.  

Tomorrow I am going to try to make a sweet version of the bread, maybe cinnamon and brown sugar?

If it comes out good, I'll be sure to share.

I agree with those who tried it and question it. Following the recipe to a T, it was so dry that it wasn't even mixable, just a bunch of powder in the bowl. I added more milk, and it became a sticky ball. Since your recipe said pour, I feel like something was lost in translation. It didn't fill out the bottom of my slow cooker, and after an hour and 15 min on high, I don't feel like it is done. I see you didn't respond to the others who had the same problem, though.

Please can you tell me what the British version of Bisquick would be? I'm keen to try this recipe but do not know what to substitute with. Many thanks.

Hi, I was wondering if you preheated the slow cooker or put the dough in cold? Thanks!

Question: I recently subscribed to your 100 Days of Summer Slow Cooker blog. How do I get recipes that you have already posted? I can't seem to find a way to get to them. When I click on the 'click here' for previous recipes, it takes me to a listing, but when I click on the name of the dish, it just takes me to a picture - no recipe. Thanks!

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by! That isn't my blog, they just featured my recipe there. I would try to find an email on their site to send your question over to. Best of luck!

I had to read 17 reviews before I got one who actually made the recipe! What good is a review saying "It really looks good!"???

Richard Bergman.....As much use as you criticizing those who just said it looks good!!

Dawn, still want to know if you tried the sweet version with brown sugar & Cinnamon? I'd try it myself, but no clue how much of each to use!
