Yep, you read that right. Yeast Rolls. Made with apple butter. In a slow cooker.
This easy yeast rolls recipe is my favorite variety of crockpot bread, with a rich sweet flavor and moist tender texture. Just the kind of rolls you want to serve on Thanksgiving!
Hi, my name is Sommer and I’m a bread burner.
It’s been 3 weeks since I last burned a baguette and scraped the black crumby evidence into the kitchen sink…
What, you think just because I create recipes for a living I never struggle in the kitchen?
I’ve burned bread my whole life. I can’t even prepare a proper piece of toast without having one of the kids stand over the toaster for me with wooden tongs in hand.
I’m going to blame it on my mother. Bread-burning runs in the family.
My mother is an amazing cook. She was my first inspiration and mentor in the kitchen, and has taught me many things over the years.
But, my mother burns bread.
Among all the useful kitchen tips I’ve learned from her, I’ve also learned that bread is the least important element in a meal. Therefore, you pop it in the oven and never look back.
That is, until you smell the dark char wafting from the oven.
This is how I was raised and this is how I’ve always treated bread.
Until I discovered crockpot bread.
Crockpot bread has changed my whole perspective on bread baking.
No, it’s not the most glamorous bread, with a glossary top and crispy crust, but it’s almost impossible to burn and it stays extremely moist.
Because crockpot bread is cooked on low heat in a slow cooker, the bottom develops color and crust and the rest of the bread is steamed to perfection.
This apple butter yeast rolls recipe is one of my favorite varieties of crockpot bread. It’s slightly sweet with a deep apple flavor and the little yeast rolls stay so soft and moist, they are impossible to resist.
Yes, this apple butter yeast rolls recipe takes much longer to bake in a slow cooker than in the oven, but if you are like me (a notorious bread burner) it’s worth the extra time.
You can casually check the yeast rolls whenever you get around to it, knowing that extra few minutes is not going to ruin the whole bread baking endeavor.
Another reason to make your apple butter yeast rolls in a slow cooker is to save room in the oven for other dishes.
Thanksgiving would be a great time to try this yeast rolls recipe. While your turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and casseroles are hogging the oven, your sweet little yeast rolls will be steaming away on the counter top.
Crockpot bread has been a revelation for me.
If you’ve never tried it, this apple butter yeast rolls recipe is the perfect place to start!
