This whole wheat bread is so good you'll want to bake a loaf every day. This whole wheat bread is so good you'll want to bake a loaf every day.
Number of Servings: 22


    1 1/2 c. warm Water
    1/4 c. Honey
    1 tbsp. Active Dry Yeast
    2 tsp sea salt
    3 1/2 c. Whole Wheat Flour
    2 tbsp. olive Oil
    1 c. Walnut coarsly chopped


In a large bowl, combine the warm water, honey, yeast and salt. The water should feel hot to the touch but not scalding, like hot bathwater. Stir and let the yeast dissolve. Whisk in flour, oil and half the walnuts. Then, using a wooden spoon, or some other strong, large spoon, stif in the rest of the flour and walnuts. You will have a sticky dough, stiff enough to form a ball but somewhat softer than the usual bread dough. Pat it into a ball and put it back in its bowl. Cover the bowl with a lid (not airtight) and leave the dough to rise for 3-4 hours; it will rise until it collapses. At this poin you can shape your loaf and bake your bread. Bake at 350 Degrees for 35 minutes to an hour, until done.

    I ate all kinds of bread when I lived in Germany. Something like this must be good. I like it when the bread has a full taste ... almost cake like :) - 9/29/10

    When this recipe was given to me, I failed to get the temp or bake time. :) But, 350 is standard and about 35-60 minutes should be enough time. I'll have to try it again and find out exactly what works.

    I will try this when weather gets cool at night to heat the house. Sounds delicious but time and temp where left out so I am just guessing. - 10/11/10
