    Rye, Spelt & Walnut Bread

    This is amazing, slightly sweet and nutty. I can't stop eating it! Be warned, it's much better when bulking!

    rye flour 400g
    wholemeal spelt flour 400g
    strong white flour 100g
    easy-bake dried yeast 10g
    fine sea salt 1 tsp
    warm water 600ml
    honey 3 tbsp
    shelled walnuts 100g
    grated parmesan 75g (optional)

    Put the flours into a warm, generously sized mixing bowl with the dried yeast and salt, and mix well.

    Lightly warm the water with the honey, stirring to dissolve, then pour into the flour and yeast. Mix the ingredients to form a sticky dough, then tip on to a floured board or work surface.

    Form the dough into a ball, then knead by hand, pulling and stretching the dough, for a good 4 or 5 minutes.

    Lightly oil the bowl then return the dough to it, cover with a tea cloth or clingfilm, then set aside in a warm place for about an hour, until the dough is half as big again.

    Remove the dough from the bowl, place on a lightly floured board and knead again, briefly, for just a minute or two, incorporating the walnuts and parmesan as you go. Divide the dough in half, then place in the prepared loaf tins, cover and set aside for a further 30 minutes until risen. Set the oven at 220C/gas mark 8. Bake for 30 minutes, until crisp on top. Remove from the oven, leave for 10 minutes in its tin, then lift out and leave to cool before slicing.

    To keep, wrap in foil or kitchen film and set aside. It will also freeze well.
