Rice Cooker Quick Bread Recipe

This no-knead bread recipe could just as easily be thrown in a pyrex bowl and baked in the oven, but I love a gimmick! When I heard that you can make fresh bread in a rice cooker I added a package of yeast to my regular grocery haul. The ingredients only set me back a few dollars and the end result is a crusty wheel of bread that exceeded my expectations by a long shot. Not only is it delicious with a dab of butter, but it has no sugar or preservatives.

Because it calls for quick rise years the bread only takes a little over an hour to make – with no dirty dishes!

No-Knead Bread Recipe


  • 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • 1½ cups water, hot
  • 1 package quick-rise yeast (I used Fleischmann’s)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoon salt


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in your rice cooker
  2. Add hot water and stir until the mixture is wet and sticky
  3. Put on the rice cooker lid and set the dough aside until it bubbles (15 minutes)
  4. Spread some flour onto a cutting board and dump out the dough mixture
  5. Fold the dough over itself once or twice until you get a nice ball
  6. Coat the dough in olive oil and set it back into the rice cooker.
  7. Let this rise for another 15 minutes and then turn on the rice cooker.
  8. Cook for 10 minutes, pop out the bead and put it back into the rice cooker upside down for another 10 minutes.
