No recipe image available.A honey sweetened whole wheat yeast bread, kissed with orange zest and loaded with walnuts.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
2 (0.25-ounce) packages active dry yeast, or 4 1/2 teaspoons
1 tablespoon orange peel, grated
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped
1 cup all-purpose flour

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, grated orange peel and salt.
  2. In a saucepan heat milk, water, honey and oil until warm. Gradually add to the flour mixture, beating with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth; about 2 minutes. Beat at high speed for 2 minutes. Stir in whole wheat flour and chopped walnuts. Use additional flour while kneading to make a soft dough. Cover, and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Punch down and divide into 6 large sized equal balls. Place 3 balls each in a greased 9-inch loaf pan. Allow to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for 45 minutes or until done. Remove from the pans and cool on a wire rack.

Makes 3 loaves.
