This is an interesting question.  I wonder how this would turn out?  You could stick a pan of bread in the cooker, add some water around the outside of your pan and this would basically give you a small steam oven.


Not sure how you could regulate your temps, but if you didn't mind a long bake, this might work.


I personally think that if you placed your dough right in the SC without a bread pan, it might burn your crusts or cook unevenly since most SC do not have consistant heat all around the inside of the cooker.


I might give this a try sometime.

Sproutman has a recipe for slow cooker sprouted grain bread that I've heard was very good. Haven't tried it myself though. Here is a similar recipe I found online, http://www.ezhealthydiet.com/sprouted-grain-bread.html
