Walnut Bread


  • 500g Cummins Milling Wholemeal Bread Premix
  • 2 teaspoons of dry yeast
  • ½ teaspoon of castor sugar
  • 200g walnuts (broken but not crushed)
  • 150ml water
  • 125ml sour cream
  • 100ml milk


Slightly roast the walnuts (if purchased pre-shelled). You can do this by putting the nuts in a non stick frypan over a low heat and shake the pan until the oil from the nuts starts to form on the outside and go a more golden colour. Do not over roast the nuts as they can get a bitter taste to them.
Place all ingredients (except walnuts) in the bread machine. Set the machine on a ‘wheat’ setting (this has a slightly longer mixing time).
If your bread machine has a fruit and nut dispensing compartment, place walnuts in there.
If your machine does not have a nut dispenser, let the machine mix the dough for ¼ hour then add the walnuts.
