Walnut bread



From Lakes on a plate episode 3: Bread

Ingredients

  • 100g walnuts
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Squeeze of honey
  • Sprinkle of salt
  • 500g strong white flour
  • 1 tbsp black treacle
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 7g dried yeast
  • 350ml approx warm water

Instructions

  1. Place the nuts into a frying pan with a splash of olive oil on a medium heat, keep your eye on them as they will go from golden, crunchy and nutty to black and bitter in the blink of an eye.
  2. When the walnuts are cooked season with a squeeze of honey and a good sprinkle of salt. Leave to cool.
  3. Place the flour into a mixing bowl followed by the salt and black treacle. Place the yeast and the sugar into a measuring jug with the warm water. Mix until the yeast has dissolved.
  4. Pour the liquid into the flour a little at a time until a dough is formed. Cover with a tea towel and leave to prove for 30 minutes (or until double in size).
  5. Now turn the dough out on to a lightly floured work surface, sprinkle over the walnuts and knead for about 5 minutes.
  6. Put onto a baking tray and leave to prove for another 30 minutes (or again, until it has doubled in size).
  7. Preheat the oven to 210°C and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and when tapped, and the base sounds hollow.
