I’m not normally a fan of doing things in a crock that could just as easily be done in an oven. But this one is so stinkin’ easy, and would be perfect for 1) when oven space is tight and/or 2) when it’s too hot to turn on the oven. And the bread’s texture is really, really yummy from being cooked in a moist crock.
(Note: does moist crock sound kind of vulgar to you, too? Let’s pretend I never said it.)
This makes a small loaf – enough for 3 to 4 people. I have a huge crock pot and it works fine, but you can easily double it if you have a 6-quart like me.
