When I first got my slow cooker I didn’t expect to be able to make breads and desserts in it. But after experimenting with a few recipes I’m pleased to report that a slow cooker is even more versatile than I thought it was.
But why would you want to make something like banana bread in a slow cooker when you can make it in the oven, or even a bread maker?
There are many reasons. Maybe your oven is full up cooking a roast dinner, or perhaps you want to head out for a few hours and don’t want to leave the oven on. Whatever your reason, making banana bread in a slow cooker is straight forward and it tastes just as good as making it any other way.
The texture comes out slightly differently than when made in an oven, it is more dense and doesn’t rise as much, but it still tastes AMAZING.
