Instructions

  • Warm water and honey (or maple syrup) should be mixed together in a relatively small bowl.
  • Place the active dry yeast on top of the surface, and then allow it to sit for approximately five to ten minutes, or until it becomes foamy.

  • Mix the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and salt together in a large bowl intended for mixing recipes.
  • The activated yeast mixture should be poured into the well that you have created in the middle. Stir until a dough that is shaggy is formed.

 

  • After transferring the dough to a surface that has been dusted with flour, knead it for approximately eight to ten minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • At this stage, you may also make use of a stand mixer that is equipped with a dough hook attachment.

  • After the dough has been thoroughly kneaded, it should be flattened out and then the chopped walnuts should be sprinkled evenly over the surface.
  • Continue kneading the dough for another two to three minutes, or until the walnuts are distributed evenly throughout the dough, and then fold the dough over the walnuts.

 

  • The dough should be rolled into a ball and then placed in a bowl that has been lightly greased.
  • The dough should be allowed to rise in a warm, draft-free environment for approximately one to two hours, or until it has doubled in size. Cover it with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap.

  • In order to release the air bubbles that have formed in the dough after it has risen, gently punch it down.
  • Create a round or oval loaf by transferring it to a surface that has been lightly dusted with flour and shaping it.

 

  • Using a baking sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal and lined with parchment paper, place the shaped loaf on the baking sheet.
  • Allow it to rise for an additional thirty to forty-five minutes, or until it becomes slightly puffy, while you cover it loosely with a kitchen towel.

  • Set your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius) approximately twenty minutes before the end of the second rise.
  • Additionally, a baking stone or a baking sheet that has been turned upside down should be placed in the oven to preheat.

 

  • Slash the surface of the loaf that has risen by using a sharp knife or a razor blade to make shallow cuts that are approximately one quarter of an inch deep.
  • Because of this, the bread will be able to expand and will have a more rustic appearance.

  • Be sure to transfer the loaf that has risen carefully onto the baking stone or baking sheet that has been preheated.
  • Bake the crust for twenty-five to thirty minutes, or until it reaches a golden brown colour and makes a hollow sound when tapped on the bottom.

 

  • Immediately after the bread has been baked, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool for at least half an hour on a wire rack before slicing it.
  • When served warm, slices of this Crusty Walnut Wheat Bread can be enjoyed with butter, cheese, or any other spreads of your choosing.
