Walnut Wheat Bread

While in Portland, we had brunch at Broder. Delicious. Part of my meal included walnut toast. Delicious. So I decided to look up a walnut bread recipe to try. Found this one on my All Recipes app.

My version


1 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 C. whole wheat flour
3/4 C. chopped walnuts
2 T. brown sugar
1 package active dry yeast
3/4 C. water
1/3 C. reduced-fat plain yogurt
2 T. margarine


In a large mixing bowl, combine 3/4 C. all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, walnuts, brown sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat water, yogurt and margarine; stir into flour mixture. Add enough of the remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm place until divided, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape each portion into a 15-inch rope. Place the ropes on a greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 23-28 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to cool on a wire rack.
