  • large oval slow cooker


  • 500 g strong white flour
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 280 g water weighed in a jug
  • 100 g roasted pumpkin grated, with a little light brown sugar stirred in
  • 1 eating apple chopped and coated in cinnamon, roasted for ten mins to soften
  • 1 handful of cinnamon coated sultanas


  • Put the flour in a bowl, then add the yeast on one side, and the salt on the other.
  • Then pour in the water and mix by hand until it forms a dough. Knead for ten mins then put in a bowl and cover, leaving it to rise for an hour.
  • Mix the roasted pumpkin, apple and sultanas into the dough. If too moist, add more flour. Knead the dough again until elastic.
  • Leave to rise again, for another hour.
  • Bake on high in the slow cooker for approx 2 hrs. 
  • I finished it the baking in the oven to brown the top and finish the bake, since I had to go out. However, you could do it completely in the slow cooker if needed, or in the oven which would take approx 45 mins to an hour at 180 degrees. Test if the bread is asked by tapping it on the bottom. If it sounds hollow then it is done.


This loaf was made in a large 5.7 litre slow cooker
