Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Crockpot Bread, Take II

Remember last week's attempt at crockpot bread?  Lesson learned:  don't try to adjust too many things at once.  This week, I stuck with my favorite wheat bread recipe, and merely tried baking it in the crockpot. 



Though I originally found the bread recipe online on the Pleasant Hill Grain website, I no longer see the recipe there.  The original recipe was written for 2, 4, or 6 loaves, made in a Bosch Universal Mixer.  I adapted the recipe to make 1 loaf, and I mixed it in a KitchenAid mixer.

Whole Wheat Bread

To bake in crockpot, first check to make sure your bread pan will fit in your crockpot.  I have a large oval crockpot, and my bread pan just fits.  Crumple up some aluminum foil and place in the bottom of the crockpot.  Place lid on crock, then turn crockpot on high to warm up.  Grease bread pan.

Meanwhile, in mixer, put 1-1/4 c. hot water, 1 T. yeast, 1/8 c. oil, 1/8 c. honey, 1 T. vital wheat gluten, 1/2 T. dough enhancer, 1/2 T. salt, and 3 cups wheat flour. Mix to combine.  An additional 1/2 to 1 cup of flour will probably need to be added.  Add the flour until the dough comes clean off the sides of the mixing bowl.  The dough will naturally start to cling together into a ball.


Continue mixing until the bread becomes smooth and not so sticky, about 4 minutes.  Place dough into prepared bread pan, then place bread pan in crockpot.  Bake on high for 3 hours.
 Thanks for fresh homemade bread.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
