White Bread in the Crock Pot

1 envelope .25 ounce of active dry yeast (2 1/2 tsp)
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
4 cups white flour

Combine yeast, 1 tsp sugar, and the 1/4 cup warm water. Let it sit a bit, until the yeast foams, about five minutes.Add eggs, vegetable oil, 1 cup lukewarm water, salt, 1/4 cup sugar,and 2 cups of the flour. Beat it with your electric mixer about two minutes.Stir in the remaining two cups of flour with a big spoon or spatula.Place the dough in your greased crock-pot. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours. If you have a newer crock-pot, remove the stoneware and place on a cooling rack for about five minutes. If you have a older crock-pot, let cool thoroughly before you upend it.When cool, overturn the bread on to a cooling rack. Then place your cutting board on top of the bread, then over turn that so the bread is right side up on the cutting board. Let it stand about five minutes before you slice it.
It was super easy, and kind of cool because I just dropped it in to the crock-pot, and it rose in there, I didn’t even have to think about it.
