Nutty Orange Wheat Bread

  • 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • 2 (1/4-ounce) packages active dry yeast or 5 teaspoons
  • 1 tablespoon orange peal, grated
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast, grated orange peel, and salt.
  2. In a saucepan heat milk, water, honey and oil until warm. Gradually add to the flour mixture, beating with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth; about 2 minutes. Beat at high speed for 2 minutes. Stir in whole wheat flour and chopped walnuts. Use additional flour while kneading to make a soft dough. Cover, and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Punch down and divide into 6 large sized equal balls. Place 3 balls each in a greased 9-inch loaf pan. Allow to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 375*F for 45 minutes or until done. Remove from the pans and cool on a wire rack.

Makes 3 loaves.
