DIRECTIONS

  • Put first six ingredients into bread machine pan.
  • Toast chopped walnuts in a hot dry iron skillet ~ set aside in a large bowl to cool.
  • Measure flours and add to bowl with toasted walnuts.
  • Shell cardamom pods and grind the seeds with brown sugar ~ add to bowl of dry ingredients.
  • Add dry milk powder and vital wheat gluten to other dry ingredients.
  • Spoon dry ingredients into bread machine pan, on top of wet ingredients.
  • In one corner of bread machine pan, add salt ~ in an opposite corner, add the bread machine yeast.
  • Select DOUGH CYCLE ~ after about 10 minutes of mixing, check dough consistency ~ if too dry, add water one tablespoon at a time ~ if too wet, add flour one tablespoon at a time, until dough is smooth and not ragged.
  • Divide dough and shape into two one-pound loaves ~ LET DOUGH RISE UNTIL DOUBLED. ALLOW ENOUGH TIME FOR PROPER RISE ~ If dough doesn't rise enough, the bread will be dense!
  • For two one-pound loaves, bake in a preheated 350F oven, in glass pans, for 20 minutes ~ tent with foil and continue baking another 10-15 minutes.
  • For one two-pound loaf, bake in a preheated 350F oven, in glass pans, for 20 minutes ~ tent with foil and continue baking another 20-25 minutes.
  • NOTE: I have not baked this recipe in a complete bread machine baking cycle.
