  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 3 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 12 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • 1
    Combine warm water, yeast, salt and sugar in a large mixer bowl and mix on low speed until incorporated. Add eggs and melted butter and mix until combined. Gradually mix in flour until dough comes together.
  • 2
    Remove dough from bowl and place on a lightly floured surface. Grease a large bowl and add dough to bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit 1-2 hours or until dough has doubled in size.
  • 3
    Once dough has doubled in size you can either place bowl in the refrigerator overnight (up to 5 days) OR continue on with the recipe.
  • 4
    Set slow-cooker to High. Line slow-cooker with parchment paper, up the sides of the slow-cooker bowl.
  • 5
    Lightly dust a clean surface with flour. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch dough down and divide in half. Roll dough into a rectangle. Spread butter (softened almost to a melted stage) evenly over dough. Spread brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over butter and lightly push brown sugar into the butter.
  • 6
    Starting with the long edge closest to you, carefully roll dough into a log, keeping it fairly tight as you go. When you reach the edge, pinch along edge to seal. Place dough inside the slow-cooker.
  • 7
    Place a large paper towel over the top of the slow-cooker and then place the lid on the slow-cooker. Adding the paper towel will help keep the moisture off the bread.
  • 8
    Cook on High for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until the center of the bread is fully cooked. Remove from slow-cooker and let cool. Slice and enjoy!
