This guest post comes to us from blogger Dawn Lopez. Dawn is the blogger behind Homemaking Hacks. Thanks, Dawn, for your great slow cooker bread recipe.


Slow Cooker Cranberry Pecan Bread Recipe

Can’t believe it’s already December! The time has just flown and my to-do list is getting bigger by the minute. With all the other things that need to get done during the busiest season, I like to plan my holiday meals in advance. Relying on my slow cooker for some recipes makes balancing other foods that I’ll be preparing easier. Having a couple of slow cookers on hand is always a great idea!

One of my favorite foods to eat and serve for the holidays is cranberries. I love having some cranberry bread on hand to serve with the meal, it also works as an appetizer. It’s even delicious to enjoy over coffee after everyone is full but would still like something just a little sweet. Baking bread can be a time consuming task, I’ve tried here and there with some good tasting breads without a bread machine. But, I found the ultimate easy way to make it happen in my slow cooker!

Like shortcuts? Then, you’ll like this quick bread! The best part is that it only takes an hour to make and won’t take away from all of the other things you will be busy preparing for your holiday feast. What makes the bread work? Bisquick! Yup, tried and true. Its really flexible too, you can basically add any combination of spices or swap outs to make it more exciting. For example, you could use brown sugar instead of granulated or use walnuts instead of pecans. There are a lot of tasty options to suit your taste buds.

cranberry pecan bread Slow Cooker Week, Day 1: Slow Cooker Cranberry Pecan Bread Recipe

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pecan Bread Recipe


  • 1-1/12 cups Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Nonstick cooking spray


Note: I use a 6-quart slow cooker for this recipe. Using a different size may affect your results.

  1. Generously coat your slow cooker with non stick spray.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add the mixture to the center of your slow cooker.
  4. Put the cover on and set on HIGH.
  5. Your bread will be ready in approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  6. Check frequently, the bread is done when you can insert a toothpick or fork to the center and it comes out clean.

Happy holidays and hope you enjoy!

  29. With my busy schedule, I need a slow cooker to ensure I have a good dinner. The ease of putting dinner on in the morning and having a hot meal in the evening is great.

  30. Antoinette Lane says:

    Not too long ago, I purchased an inexpensive Nu-Wave Oven and from the beginning had mixed feelings about it. Recently, my son gave me a 4-quart slow cooker and after one usage I relegated the Nu-Wave to a bottom cabinet where it will reside in perpetuity.

    I’ve since learned that it’s probably wise to own two slow cookers of different capacities and your recipe above illustrates that fact.

    Cranberries are one of my favorite foods; in fact, I made only yesterday a “Slow Cooker Chronicle” recipe entitled “Cranberry Sauced Meatballs” for a pot-luck luncheon. Luckily, I purchased a larger sized bag of dried cranberries than needed hoping to use them in another recipe. Can’t wait to get started. Oh, and by the way, the meatballs were a big hit!

  31. joan m lloyd says:

    I have never tried to make bread, but a good time to try this one.

  35. Neva Beaver says:

    Interesting recipe. Actually reads like a good one. Think I’d do the bread in the oven though as I’d like it to be browned. But there are still tons of things I would make in a slow cooker and I really need one as I don’t have one at the moment.

  36. Sharon Owens says:

    Yum! I love anything with cranberries in it. And I love using a slow cooker to cook. Perfect combination!

  37. I have never commented before so this is new to me. I love this news letter and recipes i get. I am 76 years old and have overcome stage 3 cancer this year . I love to try the new recipes and especially the slow cooker ones for they don’t bear watching or stirring or anything just pop the ingredients in and forget it. Later you have a fantastic delicious treat of whatever the recipe is. Love it.

  44. I made dressing in my cfrock pot for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful! This recipe sounds wonderful. It will definatey be on my Christmas table. I like using the crock pot as it frees up my oven for other things. I would love a new crock pot since mine is small and old!

  201. Slippery outside, I ran out of pecans so making the bread with sliced almomds instead, should be yummy !!

  202. I love cranberries….will be trying this recipe!

  203. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I’m new to slow cooker cooking, I inherited mine from my daughter on moving to Canada so I’m grateful for all these recipes. Who would have guessed that one could make so many different things. I mean stews ok, logical but bread, cakes even I’m flabbergasted.

  204. Charlotte says:

    I have never made bread in my slow cooker but may have to try this recipe.

  205. What a wonderful recipe, and at this perfect time of the year. This will make an absolutely amazing gift!

  206. I’ve never tried making bread in my slow cooker. This has inspired me!

  207. This sounds like something I’d like to bring to a holiday gathering

  208. Katrina Neason says:

    As several of the others said, I never knew you could do a bread in a slowcooker. They’re no the same as cakes. It sounds amazing. Hate to think what she went through to find the right recipe, though.

  209. Cynthia Fowler says:

    i Simply must try this recipie it shounds fantastic.

  210. I have never made bread, let a lone bread in a slow cooker. I didn’t even know it was possible.

  211. I use my slow cooker once or twice a week so always looking for new recipes

  212. WOW who knew you could make bread in these things! I thought it was only good for soups, stews, and roasts and things like that!
    Awesome recipe!

  213. Bonita Anderson says:

    I haven’t made bread in my slow cooker, but I pinned this recipe so I can try it- looks yummy!

  214. Mary Ann Clark says:

    I do not have a Slow Cooker—I have asked Santa for one for Christmas—but if I did I would surely try this recipe. It really sounds good and I love any thing made with pecans or cranberries and this has both. I can’t wait to try it.

  215. Donna Wright says:

    I love my slow cooker, and all the things I can cook in it. It is always fun to try a new recipe and learn more recipes that I can make in it. I can say my slow cooker is the best “tool” I have in my kitchen!

  216. Rebecca Wilson says:

    I have never made bread in a slow cooker, but that bread looks and sounds really good, can’t wait to try it.

  217. Wendy Bowers says:

    I have 4 slow cookers of various sizes and I love them!

  218. I love using a slow cooker but mine is a small one. That recipe looks yummy.

  219. Jodi Reinert says:

    Love crockpot recipes. Would love to be able to brown and sauté in the same pot. This would be awesome to have in my kitchen.

  220. I really prefer to get down to basics, just a bit – and never use Bisquick. To substitute for the 1.5 cups of Bisquick in this recipe (and it couldn’t be easier) just mix 1.5 cups flour with 1 TBSP baking powder – and then cut in 2 TBSP salted butter. THERE’S your Bisquick – without all the additional conditioners, partially hydrogenated oil and the excessive and unnecessary salt.

  221. I’m not a fan of Bisquick, but I pinned it. Maybe I’ll try it. After all it is a slow cooker recipe, so won’t require a great deal of time and effort.

  222. Love my slow cooker. I don’t like to heat up the kitchen during the hot months. Living in Florida that is most of the year. This would be a great way to have my dessert and eat it, too!

  223. What a great idea! I never thought to make bread I a slow cooker. Thanks for the recipe

  224. Lisa Thurman says:

    My slow cooker just died, so this would be perfect!

  225. love my slow cooker but getting old and bad knobs-would love to try this recipe and use my new slow cooker

  226. I enjoy using my slow cooker – its really great all year round, but I can honestly say I have never made bread in my slow cooker – will definitely have to check into this one ..

  227. Love my slow cookers. On Saturday night you can put everything in and Sunday when you get in from church, Dinner is served! I also like the fact there is not a lot of pans/skillets to clean up.

  228. I have never made bread in a slow cooker. I use mine a lot and have had it for quite a while. I’m afraid it might quit working most any time. Would love to win a new one and try new recipes such as this one!

  229. Kristen Brokaw says:

    Love using slow cookers, but have never made bread in mine. I need to stop missing out!

  230. Kay Childs says:

    Anything is good in the crockpot and this one looks great!

  231. Sounds heavenly! Thanks can’t wait to try it.

  232. I’ve never tried bread in a slow cooker. Looks interesting.

  233. Debi Deason says:

    This sounds yummy!

  234. Definitely trying this one!

  235. This is a nice base recipe with the option to change your flavours. Apples, raisins and slivered almonds are some other options to use.

  236. Oh my! I am going to try this today!

  237. Shelley Boyd says:

    Omg! I love cranberries!!!! I can’t wait to try this out!! Have to get a new slow cooker first, my 13 year-old droppped the lid to my other one and shattered it. Apparently, it’s so old they don’t make replacement parts for it anymore………….I loved it too! :(

  238. I would never have thought of making this in the Crock Pot. Actually, I’ve never tried any bread in the Crock Pot. Not brave enough, I guess. :)

    Merry Christmas!

  239. Winning this Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker would make dinner time so much easier, than standing over a hot stove.

  240. No, I never thought I could!

  241. Love using a slow cooker and this slow cooker bread looks delish!

  242. I’ve never tried bried in my slow-cooker, but this looks good. I’ll have to give it a try!
