Cook on low for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or on high for 1.5-2 hours or until edges are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. (The time may be slightly different depending on your slow cooker - mine took 1.5 hours).
*If you want your bread sweeter, feel free to add more maple syrup or you can also use 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
**To make your own buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk and let it sit for about 5 minutes - until it's curdled. Then measure out the amount needed for this recipe.
