Last year a friend served us an amazing bread from Orwashers that was studded with cranberries, raisins and pistachios and redolent of orange zest. Shortly thereafter I discovered the recipe and have been wanting to try it. I finally had the time yesterday and I got to use the bread proofing setting on my oven! The recipe produces 4 loaves, so i baked off two and the other two are shaped and in the freezer. I've got to say, it's pretty damn good.


Can you link to the recipe?

Walnut bread, using 18hr method and proportions, substituting green walnut wine for 2/3 the liquid and increasing yeast to 1/2 teaspoon, ton of walnuts.   All else the same.

I've always made challah with unbleached all-purpose flour. I think your worry about heaviness was unfounded especially in this case because the eggs make a lovely pliable dough that rises well and produces a fluffy texture. The only thing to watch, I think, is baking time, paying special attention to removing the loaf from the oven before the interior dries yet not before the exterior browns adequately.

Yes, yes, yes!!!

 

Great post Rose.

 

In the running for best post of the year!!!
