In Lakeville, Indiana, Rosadene Herold's recipe box is quickly gaining in gains. "Moist and nutty, this whole wheat bread has excellent flavor and always bakes up golden and tender. You may want to make a couple loaves at a time," she suggests. "It never lasts long at our house!"

"I've made this bread many times. It is fast and easy enough to make for supper after work. The food processor makes quick work of chopping the walnuts, but I keep a jar already processed on standby in the fridge. For Christmas, I gave a loaf wrapped in a new kitchen towel with a jar of local honey as gifts. Everyone raved!"
