I made this slow cooker whole wheat bread to go with slow cooker baked beans. Hearty and flavorful, it was the perfect way to sop up those rich and delicious baked bean juices and round out our meal.

Slow Cooker Whole Wheat Bread with Molasses
- 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1-2/3 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup molasses
- Grease a loaf pan that will fit in your slow cooker. (I used an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan.)
- Create a trivet that will fit into the bottom of your slow cooker. You can make a coil from aluminum foil. Or use several of the metal rings from canning jars, which is what I do.)
- In a large bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, cornmeal, salt and baking soda until well blended.
- In another bowl stir together the yogurt and molasses.
- Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until combined.
- Scrape the dough into your loaf pan.
- Place in your slow cooker.
- Cover and prop the lid open at one end with a wooden spoon handle or chopstick to let steam escape.
- Cook on HIGH and cook for 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Alternatively, you can cook in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour)
- Carefully remove the loaf pan from your slow cooker and cool on a rack for 15 minutes and then remove the loaf from the pan and place it on the rack to cool completely or enjoy warm.
