Never even knew it was an option. Going to watch with interest!

There is an abundance of information on Pinterest. I've just stumbled across it. I've been put off by the randomness of '1.5 cups of warm water' in the recipes. I'm never very successful when the recipes aee vague like that.

What is vague about 1.5 cups of warm water?

I'm curious too mind you. Although I have a breadmaker so it's probably not relevant!

How big is one cup compared to the slow cooker? How warm?

I am intrigued by this! Watching with interest. Never occurred to me that it would be an option.

Just wondering, would it have a crust or would it be a soft loaf? What's the texture meant to be like?

They all looked like soda bread.

Cup is an American measure that's equivalent to about 240ml. I find a Tommy Tipee sippy cup is about right for my breadmaker recipes but not done a slow cooker recipe.

Yes, a cup is a specific measurement. I have a set of measuring cups.

Warm is not hot and not cold smile I'd go with "feels warm when you stick your finger in" If it doesn't feel any temperature, just wet, I'd call that "tepid"
