I’m no stranger to slow-cooker recipes, but I’m pretty new to the world of slow-cooker bread “baking.” I’ve had my slow cooker for years, and I use it regularly it for everything from braised meat to root vegetable soup to weekly batches of chicken stock (and so on). But baking in the slow-cooker? That’s something I’d never tried until recently.

I love bread, but it’s never been my friend when it comes to baking from scratch. Quick breads like banana bread, pumpkin bread and cornbread are easy enough, but I can never quite get the yeasted stuff to come out right, so I’d all but given up on it. Then, someone suggested I try my luck with slow-cooker bread. And you know what? I’m sold.

The below 17 slow-cooker bread recipes range from sweet quick breads to savory yeasted breads, so you’re bound to find whatever it is you’re looking for. The process of making each one is a little different, but all are a little more foolproof thanks to the slow-cooker cooking method. If you’re skeptical, go ahead and give one a try—I bet you’ll change your mind.
