Bread in a Crockpot

This is amazing.  I had no idea you could make bread in a crockpot.  I had never heard of it.  I found it in a ward cookbook from my sister.  From beginning to end, this takes about three hours.  You have to have one of the more oblong crockpots--one that holds a bread loaf pan.

The first thing you want to do is preheat your crockpot on high for 30 minutes.

1 pkg. dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1 egg
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 c. lukewarm water
1 tsp. salt
1/4 c. sugar
3 1/2 - 4 c. flour

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and 1 tsp. sugar in 1/4 c. warm water.  Let it stand for a little bit until it foams up a bit.  Add egg, oil, lukewarm water, salt, 1/4 c. sugar, and 2 c. of the flour.  Beat with an electric mixer for 2 mins.  With a wooden spoon, stir in remaining 1 1/2 to 2 c. flour til dough leaves sides of bowl.  Place dough in well-greased bread pan; cover very loosely (I used foil).  Place pan in pre-heated crockpot.  Cover and bake on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until the edges are browned.  Remove from crockpot and uncover.  Let stand five minutes and then tip out of pan.
