Walnut Sourdough Bread

| tags: recipes

This is my modification of the recipe found at Sourdough Home.

Makes 1 loaf.

  • 1 cup walnut pieces toasted 7 minutes at 325 convection stir once
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 9 ounces water
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp yeast
Put 3/8 cup of the toasted walnuts into a food processor with 1 TBSP of whole wheat flour. Pulse the nuts and flour in the processor until they are finely ground.

Put all ingredients into mixer bowl with bread hook. Mix 1 minute on 1 and then 5 minutes on 2.

The dough was a bit sticky. Perhaps another tablespoon of flour?

Remove the dough from the mixer bowl, oil the bowl and return the dough. Allow to rise until double, about 40 minutes at 100 degrees.

Punch down, shape, put in a loaf pan. Allow to rise. Bake at 325 convection for 40 minutes.
