Whole Wheat Bread with Pecans and Golden Raisins by Hamelman

Organic Whole Wheat Bread with Walnuts and Raisins. This is a recipe by Hamelman (Bread a Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes). I substituted pecans for walnuts and golden raisins for regular organic raisins. I made this for my children.  It is full of goodness, from whole wheat, walnuts, to raisins. They enjoy it for breakfast with organic butter and honey as I write this. :) I find myself more and more baking using recipes from this book. And so far love all the breads I tried.

It is a beautiful bread for breakfast. We, as family love  to spread butter and honey on slice of this bread.

What a lovely crumb.  It is such a delicious looking loaf.  I can see why your family enjoys it so much with just a dap of honey and good butter.  I especially like the way you've done it in a loaf pan.  Great looking bake!

Thanks Sylvia,

What I love in this bread is the texture with crunchy nuts and sweet raisins that balance out somewhat bitter wheat note. And slice of this bread with butter and good honey even better.  :)

All the best
