Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift flour, salt, and sugar into a warm bowl.
  2. Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of warm milk, and pour it into the middle of the flour, together with the walnut oil (or butter) and the rest of the milk.
  3. Knead well until the dough is firm and blended into a smooth, springy ball (about 10 minutes).
  4. Leave in a warm place to rise for 2 hours (or in a cool place overnight).
  5. Punch down the dough, mix in the walnuts and onion, shape into four rounds, and leave on a greased baking tray to rise for 45 minutes.
  6. Bake at 400º for 45 minutes, or until the loaves sound hollow when tapped underneath.
  7. Note: After 20 minutes of baking, check to see how brown the loaves are.
  8. Cover loosely with foil if they are browned.
