Sweet Potato and Pesto Slow-Cooker Bread

I like to bake fresh bread at home as a way to offer my family a delicious accompaniment to dinner. Baking bread in the slow cooker allows me to achieve a tender, perfectly baked loaf without turning on the oven. It’s especially helpful in the summer when the house gets too warm. This way also eliminates the need for a second rise, which is a nice timesaver. The beautiful braided loaf is one of my favorite recipes. —Shauna Havey, Roy, Utah
