Honey Walnut Bread

July 31, 2013Teresa

Honey Walnut Bread is a fantastic breadmaker bread. It’s made with honey, walnuts, and walnut oil. I had seen the recipe in my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, The Complete Guide to Bread Machine Baking. I had been looking around trying to find walnut oil so I could make it. I finally found some at our local H-E-B grocery store, so I snatched up a bottle and made a batch of this great tasting bread the following day!

The taste is incredible and the texture is superb. I love a soft, fluffy, homemade bread that’s not tough like some store-bought breads can be. This bread turned out so wonderfully. I love the fact that I don’t have to exert any extra effort since it’s made in the breadmaker!

Almost everyone who knows me well knows that I LOVE homemade bread. I enjoy eating  a slice with salad or soup, or toasting it and serving it with eggs on top or jelly. I suppose I got hooked on homemade bread early in life because my Mom ALWAYS made homemade bread. We never bought store-bought bread until I was in high school–and then only occasionally.

When I made this bread a couple of weeks ago I just loved it. In spite of the fact that I love homemade bread, I’m not always easy to please. Some breads are on the bitter side. Others don’t have great texture. Some don’t have enough flavor. And others come out either tough or too dense. So I’m rather picky when it comes to eating a good love of homemade bread. Maybe because my Mom’s homemade bread was always so very good, I’m a little spoiled when it comes to good homemade bread.

However, Honey Walnut Bread certainly passed my stamp of approval. I plan on making this recipe again and again in the future. If you’re looking for a scrumptious tasting homemade bread than consider making a batch of this great bread soon. I include the amounts for a 2-pound breadmaker loaf although the cookbook also gives amounts for a 1 1/2-pound bread loaf.

If you’re someone who also likes to have good homemade bread on hand frequently, I highly recommend this cookbook. I picked mine up at Half Price Books. But they also sell the book on Amazon. This cookbook has a couple hundred recipes just for the bread machine and they are all different. It’s really a great cookbook if you love making homemade bread in the breadmaker. I have found each recipe I’ve tried have turned out quite well.

I initially posted this recipe in July 2013. The pictures were okay, but I used the bread in my Honey Walnut French Toast recipe and those pictures were awful. So I remade the recipe in December 2020. I am just about finished remaking all the recipes from the early days in my blog where my pictures were horrible. This recipe turned out just as well as the first time. It’s terrific as plain bread or French Toast. I hope you enjoy it.

Honey Walnut Bread is a delicious bread you can make in the breadmaker.

It’s good spread with honey or preserves.

This bread sliced up quite well. The texture was really nice for a homemade bread recipe.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients.

Honey Walnut Bread | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | delicious #HomemadeBread for the #Breadmaker! Made with #walnuts & #honey. Great for #breakfast or dinner. #HoneyWalnutBread

Measure hot water and place in bread canister. Add honey, walnut oil and bread flour. Regular all-purpose flour doesn’t have enough gluten so the bread particles won’t adhere together as well and the bread will get crumbly.

Add dry nonfat milk powder, salt and bread machine yeast.

Chop walnuts fine and add to breadmaker. Place on regular bread setting. My breadmaker took 3 hours 50 minutes.

Remove bread canister from oven.

Allow bread to cool about 15 minutes before removing from canister. Butter the top and sides. This helps the crust to stay softer and not toughen up so much.

Cool bread before slicing down. I use an electric bread knife for clean, smooth slices.

Honey Walnut Bread is great served for breakfast with honey, preserves and fresh fruit.

I have another recipe for Oatmeal Nut Bread that I like, too. There is something about using walnuts and walnut oil in recipes that adds so much extra essence to a recipe. I like serving homemade bread with soups and salads.

The texture of Honey Walnut Bread was excellent. The honey added sweetness and the walnuts and walnut oil added a deep, rich flavor to this tasty breadmaker bread.

Instructions
  1. Layer ingredients in order given in bread canister.
  2. Place on regular white bread setting. Mine takes 3 hours 50 minutes.
  3. Allow bread to cool about 15 minutes before removing from oven.
  4. Remove bread from canister and butter the top and sides with butter to prevent the crust from hardening.
  5. Slice down when cool.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Homemade bread has no preservatives so it needs to be refrigerated after 2 days.

NOTE: all-purpose flour does not contain the necessary gluten to bond the ingredients together as well as bread flour. The bread may turn out crumbly. For best results use bread flour.

NOTE: I recommend using Fleischmann's yeast or bread machine yeast in any yeast bread recipe. Red Star yeast just doesn't work as well.

NOTE: If you cannot locate walnut oil, avocado or pistachio oil may be a good substitute.
