Everyday there are more and more cases of Covid-19 being reported. Which is making us want to skip even the quickest trip to the supermarket. Last week we ran out of bread and since that was really the only thing we were wanting at the store we decided to break out the crockpot again. Our crockpot Vegan Banana Bread got so good we thought we’d try making our French Country White Bread in the crockpot too! (For the recipe to our Vegan Banana Bread, follow the link…https://thebunniespatch.home.blog/2020/03/18/vegan-banana-bread/ ) Yes, banana bread and a loaf of white bread has different textures and different ingredients but why not give it a try, right? Amazingly enough, it came out fantastic!! It’s soft in the center and crusty on the outside. Perfect to use for toast with jam, to make french toast in the morning (or afternoon..) and is a yummy sandwich bread. Plus, this recipe is great to prepare at night and let rise while sleeping. It only takes about 2-3 hour to bake in the crockpot and you have fresh homemade bread for the week. If it lasts that long. Because it is just that good. So, let’s get cooking.
