Sunflower Walnut Bread

May 2, 2014Teresa

Sunflower Walnut Bread is simply wonderful. It’s another tasty and delicious home-baked bread for the breadmaker. Sunflower seed kernels and walnuts bake up into a light and fluffy dinner bread. Adding honey allows for just a touch of sweetness. This quick and easy recipe makes a delightful  homemade bread your family is sure to enjoy for any occasion.

I made up several batches of homemade bread and salads for a large church retirement celebration dinner last weekend and decided to give this recipe a try. I found it in my old Black and Decker bread machine cookbook. And, although I’ve tried almost every recipe in that book at one point or another, this was one that I had not yet tried.

I loved the taste and texture of the finished loaf. I enjoyed mine with butter on top, but certainly you can eat it plain, toasted, or with jams or preserves spread over top. It’s also great for breakfast especially for company and holidays.

If you’re looking for a healthier option for homebaked bread, then give Sunflower Walnut Bread a try sometime. You’ll love the chunky texture along with the ease of tossing the ingredients in a breadmaker. I have to admit, I love those “fix it and forget about it” recipes–and this is certainly one of them. This recipe makes a two-pound loaf.

Sunflower Walnut Bread is a healthier breadmaker bread. You can make it even healthier by using walnut oil and whole wheat flour if you prefer.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: This bread has no preservatives so you will need to refrigerate it after a few days to prevent mold.

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.
