Author: Susana Macedo

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp Oil
  • 3/4 cup Milk - Lukewarm – between 75°–90°F or 24°–32°C
  • 2 Egg - slightly beaten)
  • 2 cups Bread flour
  • 3/4 cup Walnut - chopped
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Instant dry yeast

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the bread pan.
  • Grease generously the Bread Maker pan with 4 tbsp of vegetable oil.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in your Bread Maker manual – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With a finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients. If using programming time, place the Walnuts after flour.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Plug the power cord into a wall outlet. Select the “Rapid/Quick” (about 1:20-1:45h - This cycle varies from machine to machine bread setting and press the Start button.
    With the “Quick setting,” “Crust Colour,” and “size” cannot be changed.
  • Caution: Do not use Delay Timer* for recipes with ingredients that can spoil, like eggs or milk. More information at: "Using the Delay Timer".
  • After 6 minutes of pre-mixing, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine while removing the flour from the sides.
    This bread does not form the dough ball, it looks like more of a cake batter.
  • It will mix and bake the bread.
  • When the baking cycle is complete, press the stop button and unplug the breadmaker.
  • Open the lid while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn the bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto the rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time, use a Bread Slicer and electric knife.

Notes

When to add the walnuts?
  • If you prefer it well chopped and mixed, add at the beginning with all other ingredients. Remember that the kneading paddle can pulverize chopped nuts.
  • Adding the nuts to the dough near the end of the kneading cycle (at the beep if your machine has this feature), the pieces will be lightly but efficiently distributed throughout the dough.
  • Adding nuts too late in the cycle will result in a layer of nuts at the bottom of the loaf.
Flavours Variations:
  • Banana & nuts: Replace vegetable oil with ½ cup softened butter. Discard the milk and add 1 cup of crushed ripe banana. (about 2 bananas)
  • Cherry and pecan: Reduce milk to ½ cup. Use chopped pecans for chopped walnuts; add ½ cup chopped maraschino cherry (well-drained)
  • Dates: Reduce milk to ½ cup and soak 1 cup of chopped dates in 1/3 cup of hot water for at least 5 minutes to soften before adding to bread. Make sure they are soft.

How can you tell if the bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s very easy to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.

your recipe does not say when to add walnuts.

I am so sorry, Dorothy. Thanks for reminding me. I will add this note there.
It all depends on what you want.
If you prefer it well chopped and mixed, add at the beginning with all other ingredients. Remember that the kneading paddle can pulverize chopped nuts.
Adding the nuts to the dough near the end of the kneading cycle (at the beep if your machine has this feature), the pieces will be lightly but efficiently distributed throughout the dough.
Adding nuts too late in the cycle will result in a layer of nuts at the bottom of the loaf.

Hello—thanks for your great recipes. I am gluten free and have to use nut flours for bread, etc. Can’t use almond tho darnit so most of my breads are heavy and require a LONG time to cook. I just bought an Elite Gourmet 2 lb programmable bread machine but the cook time is only 30 minutes on gluten free setting. Cannot figure out how to extend the time on this machine without baby-sitting the cooking time.
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much—-Peni

Hello Peni,

I really appreciate your comment.
I am glad you like my recipes, they are all made with care and love.

I don’t know the Elite Gourmet bread machine cycle setting times and I was not able to find the user manual online to check.

If this machine allows you to create custom “settings” I suggest you the following times for the gluten-free setting with a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes:

  • 5 minutes – mix
  • 10 minutes – knead
  • 60 minutes – rise
  • 55 minutes – bake
  • If this machine doesn’t allow you to create custom “settings” I suggest you use a Quick yeast bread setting (also known as “Rapid” or “Turbo” or “Quick bake” or just “Quick”) since these doughs require less rising time.

    I hope it helps.
    If you have any questions, please just ask anytime.

    Remember, once you make my recipes, I would love to see your creations, so please let me know!
