Honey Whole Wheat and Walnut Bread

Serves: 
2

This whole wheat bread is sweetened with honey and made nutty with walnuts. The tender loaf makes great sandwiches or is a tasty addition to a bread basket.

Ingredients

1 oz. fresh yeast or 2 tbsp. dry yeast
4 cups warm water
2 eggs
1⁄4 cup molasses
1⁄4 cup honey
1⁄3 cup olive oil
1 1⁄2 tbsp. salt
1 1⁄2 cups walnuts, coarsely chopped
1⁄3 cup millet
6 cups stone ground wheat flour
2-3 cups bread flour

Steps

1. Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water. In a large bowl, combine eggs, molasses, honey, oil, salt and remaining water. Add nuts, millet, wheat flour and yeast mixture. Stir until well blended.

2. Add enough bread flour to make a workable dough. Knead 10-12 min., adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. Coat the dough with oil and allow to rise for 1-11⁄2 hr., until doubled in size.

3. Shape into 2-3 loaves and place on a greased sheet pan. Let rise again approx. 30-45 min. Slit top of loaves, spray with water, sprinkle with flour and bake in a 350° F. oven for 40-50 min.

Because we have 39 locations throughout the state, employees are offered a transfer if they’re planning a move. They’re rehired by the company, but there’s no additional training needed and employees are ready to go on Day 1.

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first. Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.
