Did you know you can bake foccacia bread in the crockpot? Yes you can! This might be one of my favorite 1 Dough, 31 Whole Grain Recipes!
I can’t emphasize this enough: cook time will vary with the size and shape of your crockpot. I have a 7 quart oval Crockpot. My bread did not touch all sides. It only touched the bottom.
The first time you make this, you’ll want to note the cook time on your bread. Look through the lid. You will slowly see the bread brown along the sides, then the brown will slowly creep up to the top until the top of your bread is browned. That’s when it is done!
Now, if I were to eat this whole loaf myself, and believe me I could!, I would sprinkle a bit of red pepper flakes across the top when I sprinkled the salt. I LOVE heat in my food. But, since my kids usually help me eat a loaf, I leave it out and maybe just sprinkle some on my own piece.
