    2 loaves

Ingredients

  • 1 package (2 tsp) (10 ml) active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup warm water (83 ml) (110F to 115F or 43C-46C)
  • 2 cups (500 ml) warm milk (110F-115F or 43C-46C)
  • 2 cups (500 ml) whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup (125 ml) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) butter melted
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) salt
  • 4 cups (1 L) bread or all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (250 ml) cooked wild rice, cooled to room temperature
  • 1 ¾ cup walnuts (437 ml) toasted and chopped fine
  • extra flour for dusting work surface
  • drizzle of olive oil for oiling bowl

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) water

 Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast (without stirring) in the 1/3 cup (83 ml) of the warm water. This should take 10 minutes.
  2. Add the milk, whole wheat flour, honey, butter, salt and 2 cups (500 ml) of bread flour.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, beat until smooth.
  4. Stir in wild rice, walnuts and enough of the remaining bread flour to form a stiff dough.
  5. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, turning once to oil the top of the bread round.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap.
  7. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 ½ hours.
  8. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape into rounds. Transfer on to a parchment lined tray 4 inches (10cm) apart.
  9. Cover loosely with a damp towel and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  10. Beat the egg and cold water; brush over loaves using a pastry brush.
  11. Bake in a preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. (To ensure your bread is fully baked; pick the loaf up and gently tap on the bottom the bread, it should give off a hollow sound).
  12. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
