Thanksgiving Bread Recipe – Something Different

Thanksgiving Bread Crockpot Recipe

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a time to really reflect on all the blessings and being Thankful. Although we should be thankful throughout the year. I have so many things to be thankful for this year. Next year will be an even bigger year to be thankful. Can’t go into details right now but when the time is right I will share the news.


We had friends come over for dinner. We played Qwerkle. That took us over an hour to play. It was pretty fun. We talked about the cookies we were going to make for Christmas. We ate and enjoyed the company. My daughter was excited because she got to spend the night at her best friends house last night and today. We were going to get our tree today but decided to hold off until next weekend.


I like to try at least one new thing thing every year. This year I decided to try Thanksgiving Bread. It was intriguing as it was made in the crockpot. You need to make sure before you attempt to put it in a bread pan that your bread pan fits in your crock pot. I made the mistake of putting it in a bread pan and it didn’t fit. Thankfully I had a pyrex bread pan that fit.


Thanksgiving Bread Recipe –


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp grated orange zest
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. 1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. 2. Separately, mix oil, zest, juice, and egg. Beat. Stir in cranberries and walnuts.
  3. 3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.
  4. 4. Pour batter in greased and floured loaf pan.
  5. 5. Set pan on jar lid or metal trivet in slow cooker. Place lid on slow cooker, benting at one end with a wooden spoon handle or chopstick.
  6. 6. Cook on High for 3 - 4 hours, until edges of bread are pulling away from sides and tester inserted in middle of loaf comes out clean. Bread will not brown as much as oven-baked bread!
  7. 7. Wearing oven gloves to protect your knuckles, remove hot pan from cooker and allow to cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around the loaf and turn it out onto a cooling rack. Slices best when cool, if you can wait that long!
