Rustic loaf of bread fresh from oven held in a clean dish towlel.

Serves: 8

Serving size: 1 slice

Cook time: 2 hours on high

Ingredients:

1 envelope active dry yeast
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups luke-warm water
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. kosher salt

Directions:

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Line slow cooker with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine yeast and sugar. Add water and stir until combined. Add flours, oil, salt and stir until combined and a shaggy dough begins to form.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until it becomes smooth and soft, about 5 minutes. Roll dough into a ball, then place in slow cooker. Cook on high until golden on the bottom and cooked through, about 2 hours. (The internal temperature should be about 200º F, but bread will not be golden on top.) Carefully remove bread from slow cooker.
  5. To crisp up the crust, transfer to a baking sheet and broil until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes.
  6. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
