Use slow cooker to thaw and raise bread. It gives it a beautifully
brown crusty round loaf. Generously grease frozen bread loaf. Place in completely greased baking pan. Place pan in pot, cover and heat on low 2-3 hours or until bread is thawed and starting to rise. Turn to high and bake 2-3 hours or until it is brown and tests done.
