Walnut Bread

1 tbsp dry yeast
1 ½ cup warm water
1 tsp sugar or honey
2 tbsp milk powder
1 tbsp oil
1 cup walnut flour
2 ½ c white flour
1 cup walnuts, chopped

If using a bread maker simply put all the ingredients except the walnut pieces,
into the bucket and the machine on to a 'mix dough' setting.
When the dough is ready remove it from the bucket and knead in the chopped walnuts. Shape into a large oval loaf and place on a baking tray.
Cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for about 30 minutes.
Make two diagonal slices across the top of the loaf with a sharp knife.
Brush with a beaten egg or milk and bake at 190C for 30 to 40 minutes
or until done.
If not using a bread maker combine the yeast, sugar and water and leave 5 minutes to activate.
Put the flours, oil, milk powder in a separate bowl, pour in the activated yeast and knead well.
Leave it to rise and knead again for a further 20 minutes.
Then knead in the walnut pieces and shape into the large oval loaf.
Proceed as above.
