Honey Walnut Bread
Thanks to the Skinny Epicurean and her recipe, I now have some honey walnut bread to feast on! For some reason, I couldn't resist baking this after seeing the photos and the keywords "Honey" and "Walnut"...and I just happened to have all the ingredients at home!
Fairly easy recipe. I made a small loaf plus six rolls. Oh, the smell of baked honey as the bread emerges from the oven - so delicious! The light sweetness in the bread along with the crunch of walnuts keeps you eating and wanting more. The crust turned out a wee bit hard but then again I do like it when it's browned well.
The insides are a little dense (it's not the soft fluffy Hokkaido milk bread) but it's lovely when buttered and toasted.
