      Reverse Tightwadding- What's your splurge?-walnutbread.jpgMake your own delicious walnut bread machine mix to have on hand for creating simple breakfast or snack bread. The bread offers a touch of sweetness with just a dab of honey and crunchy walnuts, perfect for toasting.

      Gently dump the contents of the bread machine mix onto the water
      add 2 Tbs butter (or margarine) to the corners of the bread pan on top of the flour mix.
      In the center of the mix, make a small well, add 1 tsp yeast.

      Set the bread machine to the Basic (1 pound) loaf, with the desired bread crust color of your choice (light, med, dark).

      For a 2.5 pound Loaf you'll Need:
      4 1/2 cups Bread flour*
      5 Tbs Dry Powdered Milk
      4 Tbs Sugar
      1 1/2 tsp salt
      3/4 c. Finely Chopped Walnuts

      Combine all of the ingredients in a ziploc bag, mixing well to combine. Write the following instructions on the bag:

      Gently dump the contents of the bread machine mix onto the Water/Honey.

      =============================
      *Bread Flour- Bread flour contains more gluten than regular all purpose flour. However, you can use all purpose flour in its place if you also add 1 tsp of Vital Wheat Gluten PER Cup of flour. So for 3 cups of all purpose flour you would also add 3 tsp of gluten. For 4 cups of all purpose flour, you would add 4 tsp of gluten. Wheat gluten is available in the baking aisle of most grocery stores (usually above the flour). It comes in a small box and should be stored in the fridge for increased longevity.

      Bread Machine Note:
      The Bread machine that I used for the bread (displayed in the photo) is the West Bend High Rise (dual paddle) model. Although this recipe should work fine in any Bread Machine.

      Don't have a Bread machine?- Here are the directions for making it by hand or by a mixer.
