Walnut bread

Yesterday I had kind of a no-day in the cooking department, I baked/cooked a couple of things and I was not particularly happy with the result with any of them. Actually I might be re-baking the cake I baked yesterday… The one exception was the bread. It might be that it’s an easy thing to make or that I was really feeling the walnut bread thing but not the others. Anyway walnut bread turned out great. Other things not so much.

Walnut bread

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 spoon dry yeast
  • 1 spoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup walnuts

Directions

  1. I proceeded as usual, first I dissolved the yeast and the sugar in warm water, then I mixed the flours with the salt and the nuts and finally I mixed in the water with the dissolved yeast. This time I tried a "no knead" version so I only mixed the ingredients using a fork. I let the dough raise and when it was more or less doubled, I kneaded it into a loaf shape adding some more flour to prevent sticking. I let the loaf raise for another hour or so and then scored it with some horizontal cuts and placed it on my pizza stone in a 450F oven.
  2. Great bread to go with cheese or honey.

    I love walnuts, they remind me of winter and Christmas back in Italy!!! Here it's so hot at Christmas… 🙁 It looks so yummy… crunchy on the outside and soft and moist inside… 🙂
