Servings 2 large loaves
- 750 grams all-purpose flour
- 500 ml. (2 cups) water
- 15 grams (3 tsp.) instant dry yeast
- 25 grams fine salt
- 1 tbsp. honey or date-syrup
- 1-2 tbsp. olive oil
- 100 grams chopped walnuts
In a bowl of an electric mixer with dough hook put flour, water, yeast, salt, honey and oil.
Knead for about 12-15 minutes, until dough is smooth.
Transfer the dough to a work surface and add chopped nuts. Continue to knead with your hands for about 2-3 minutes until smooth.
Put the dough in a large bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place or until it doubles in volume.
Divide the dough into two equal parts.
Form each part of the dough in to a loaf and put on a baking tray lined with lightly floured baking paper.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for 45-60 square or until almost doubled in volume.
Preheat oven to 250c degrees. If you have a baking stone place it at the bottom.
Sprinkle a little flour over each loaf and create incisions on top using a sharp knife.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 190c degrees and bake for another 20-25 minutes until golden brown and set.
Remove the baked loafs carefully and tap at the bottom. If you hear a hollow sound - the bread is ready. If not, return for a few more minutes of baking.
Cool the loves on a cooling rack completely at room temperature.
Slice and serve.
