Notes & Tips
- Always preheat the oven before starting the preparations, the right temperature is key here.
- Do not over mix the mixture as it will result in a gummy and tough bread.
- Always grease a baking loaf pan or use parchment paper and line the pan. This will prevent the bread from sticking to the pan.
- Don’t slice the bread while it is still hot. Allowing it to rest helps the bread to set firmly and to develop the flavors. Take a little break despite the tempting smells before you slice.
- You can use other kinds of flour if you don’t have whole wheat flour like oat flour for example.
- You can replace walnuts with other types of nuts like pecans, almonds, cashews, and pine nuts.
- You can also use maple syrup if honey is not available. Or both if you are adventurous.
- If you cannot find buttermilk, you can use 1 cup of any kind of milk plus 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and just let it sit for 10 minutes. Then, you have a buttermilk substitute already to go.
