Olive Oil and Herb Crockpot Bread

Olive Oil and Herb Crockpot Bread


  • 1 packet dry active yeast (2¼ teaspoons)
  • 1¼ cups warm water
  • 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup fresh herbs, finely chopped. I used basil, garlic chives and dill.
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl stir together warm water and yeast. Allow to sit for 10 minutes until foamy.
  2. Add flour, fresh herbs (reserving 1 tablespoon), 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, sugar and salt.
  3. Work dough, kneading slightly until you can form dough into a ball. Place in a greased bowl, cover and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface, and allow to rest for another 20 minutes.
  5. Prepare your crock pot by lining the inside with parchment paper. Heat to high heat and add dough.
  6. Brush with more olive oil and sprinkle with remaining herbs.
  7. Cover the crock pot with paper towels before replacing the lid in order to prevent condensation from dripping on the bread.
  8. Bake for 2 and a half hours until cooked through. Loaf will be light colored.
  9. Allow to cool slightly before slicing.
