No Knead Slow Cooker Bread

Totally inspired by Bakingqueen74, who has been baking in her slow cooker since forever, and then reminded, poked and prodded into actually giving it a go by the colourful bread recipes that Bootstrapcook has been posting. I love the no knead method, and I can stir it all together and just leave it to do its …
