Hi friends! I recently made this whole wheat raisin and nut  loaf and i can safely say it’s an easy recipe to make:) Healthy, wholesome and yummy!

 

Ingredients

 

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons (1 packet / 7 grams) instant yeast (or active dry yeast)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar (or honey but add honey after the milk)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk, heated to 120-130° F for instant yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil (or any vegetable oil)
  • 1 egg
  • about 1/4 cup additional  flour
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Method

Place flours, yeast, nuts , raisins, sugar & salt in a large mixing bowl.
Stir in milk, followed by oil and egg.
Beat on high for 2 minutes.
On low speed add about 1/4 cup flour until dough forms a mass.
Place dough on floured surface and knead 50 turns.
Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
Shape dough into a loaf and place in a greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 3/4-inch loaf pan.
Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm spot until it’s one inch taller than the pan, about 35 minutes.
Meantime, preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Bake for 30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, I cover the top of the loaf with a foil tent to prevent over-browning.
Remove immediately from pan onto a cooling rack. Let it cool at least 10 minutes before slicing.
