Walnut bread

ingredients ( for 10 bread loaves )

For the yeast starter:
For the dough:
ca. 1 g frish yeast
300 g wheat flour
ca. 100 ml lukewarm water
300 g fine rye flour
200 g wheat flour
200 g wholemeal rye flour
24 g fresh yeast
5 g sugar
ca. 900 ml lukewarm water
200 g walnuts
20 g salt


First prepare the yeast starter. Stir 1 g of yeast in 100 ml water into 200 g wheat flour. Allow it to mature at approx. 24° C for at least 5 hours, even better 10 hours. Put the remaining flours in a bowl and dissolve the yeast and sugar in water, stir the mix into a well in the flour and allow it to rise for 15 minutes. Add the walnuts, salt and yeast starter and beat vigorously for 10 minutes. Cover the dough and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Shape into 10 longish sausages on a floured work surface and place on the baking sheet. Allow the rolls to rest for another 20 minutes before baking at 200° C for 20 minutes.

Have fun cooking!
