In all honesty, this was one of those recipes that I bookmarked to give us a bit of a break from slow-cooked food. Like the brownies, I didn’t really expect this to work. So I was pleasantly surprised when the soda bread turned out to be tasty, crusty and chewy. There’s no danger of a soggy bottom when you bake bread in the slow cooker: a soggy top is a bigger problem, so you can’t really tell when it’s done. I’d advise covering the dough with foil if you have a go at this.
