Walnut Wheat Bread Recipe

"My husband and I like this wholesome, nutty bread warm from the oven," says Rosadene Herold of Lakeville, Indiana.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, walnuts, brown sugar, butter, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat water, yogurt and butter to 120°-130°; stir into flour mixture. Add enough of the remaining all-purpose to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape each portion into a 15-in. rope. Place the ropes on a greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 23-28 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to cool on a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
