Bread is a staple that many of us have come to rely on the store for, but you might be surprised at what you can whip up at home with only a few simple ingredients, and you don’t even need a fancy bread maker to pull it off. That’s right! A sweet and delicious preservative-free option is just within reach. You’ll just have to be willing to test out a few recipes for yourself to find one that suits your needs.

The recipe that you will find down below can be made with a crockpot aka slow cooker, to avoid scalding altogether, keep cleanup easy, and to simplify the process which makes it ideal for both beginners and time-crunched seasoned chefs alike. So, if you’re convinced to try some homemade bread, and are ready to dive right in, then this is an excellent place to start.

Crockpot bread recipe

Most crockpot recipes are complicated, especially as you delve into the more luxurious meals that require precise spicing for flavor, but this simple bread recipe only requires a few ingredients, and once it’s mastered, you can turn it into a different kind every single time. Toss in some seeds or chocolate chips for a dessert loaf, or some fresh blueberries for a truly unique twist, but as is this bread recipe is perfect for toast, sandwiches, and anything else that you’d use regular white sliced bread in.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 1 hour

Calories: 98 per slice

Servings: 2 loaves


  • 6 ½ cups flour
  • 2 ¼ cups of warm water
  • 1 packet active powdered yeast
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cannabutter (heaping)
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Spoon
  • Parchment paper


  1. Add the sugar, yeast, and warm water to a large mixing bowl and whisk the ingredients together until the mixture begins to bubble.

  2. Now toss in the cannabutter and stir it well until the butter melts completely.

  • Next up is the salt and flour, which should be added to the bowl, but be sure to keep a small amount set aside for later.

  • Combine the ingredients thoroughly until they come together to form a workable dough.

  • Dust a clean and dry surface with a layer of flour and then dump the bread batter onto it.

  • Knead the dough until it is smooth and lump-free, and you will know it’s ready when you can pull it apart and it stretches with ease.

  • Cut the dough into two equal portions, as one batch of this recipe makes two loaves of bread.

  • Line the crockpot or slow cooker with a layer of parchment paper that hangs a bit over the sides.

  • Dump the bread dough onto the parchment paper and then firmly press it down into the crockpot to remove any air bubbles that might interfere with heat distribution.

  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and then turn the device up to high. Each loaf will take anywhere from 1-3 hours depending on what all you’ve added to the mix, and the strength of your device.

  • Once the bread is finished, it should be covered in a light golden-brown crust, and that is when you will need to remove it from the crockpot and turn off the heat.

  • This bread is delicious fresh out of the oven or cold, but it is important to remember that this version is not made with long-lasting preservatives, so it’s best to make sure that it’s all eaten or frozen within three days for the best high, and the freshest taste and texture.
