I’m always looking for another loaf of bread to bake and usually stop by my Mom’s old cookbooks to see what she had collected. She really did love her baking – especially desserts. The ooier and gooier, the better.

She was no slouch in the bread department, though, and without benefit of a Kitchen Aid mixer, did all her kneading by hand. Me?!? I use the mixer most of the time…

The bread is really good – great crumb, great crust, just soft enough and just enough structure. The little bits of walnut add a fun element – a nice crunch in an otherwise soft world…

My only changes to the recipe were to use butter instead of margarine, sprouted whole wheat flour, and white bread flour.

Place in greased bowl; turn to grease top.
