I haven’t baked quite as much this year as last but I have tried to stick to my goal of a different loaf each time I bake. This loaf was an experiment which turned out so nicely I may find myself having to repeat it before the year is out. With a warm, rich flavour from the heather honey I used, this is a comforting loaf for cold, damp days.
To make a medium loaf
- ¾ teaspoon dried yeast
- 10oz strong wholemeal flour
- 4oz strong white flour
- ½oz butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 280ml water
- 3oz walnut pieces
Add all the ingredients except the walnuts to the bread pan of your bread machine, in the order specified by the manufacturer.
Select the Whole Wheat Raisin setting.
Add the walnuts at the raisin beep.
Enjoy the aroma that fills your kitchen as the bread bakes, try not to eat it all in one go!
