I love the walnut bread, but since I’m in Milan I can not find it anywhere(and if I find it, it is always very  expensive). However, I always avoid to buy bread here because I find that I do not particularly like it, and so I prefer to always do it at home.

Also in this case I will not disappoint you, and here is my walnut bread.

Panini alle noci
Panini alle noci


  • ·       500g white flour
  • ·       300ml milk
  • ·       20gr olive oil
  • ·       10g sugar
  • ·       10gr salt
  • ·       25gr fresh yeast (or 7 gr powder)
  • ·       4 spoons walnuts

Process (it is very important to follow this order because yeast and salt do not  have to go together):

  1. Pour the flour into a bowl.
  2. Heated the milk (it must be warm) and dissolve in it the yeast with the sugar, then pour it on the flour and knead the mixture for a minute or two.
  3. Now add  oil and then salt, then knead with your hands for a long time until the dough becomes elastic.
  4. Now let the bread rest for an hour covered with a clean cloth and under a warm cover (I usually let it rise under  a pile cover)
  5. Once 1 hour is passed by, you will have to knead it again to stop the rise.
  6. At this point you can add walnuts while continuing to knead as to distribute them in the dough.
  7. Cover the bowl again and let rise again for another two hours.
  8. Preheat the oven to 200 °
  9. After the two hours we can give the dough a shape. To make small loaves just take small portions of the dough and place them on a baking tray covered with a baking sheet  and  be sure to leave enough space between them.
  10. Let rise for another hour.
  11. Bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on the color which will take the crust.  You can evaluate yourselves  when  to bring out the bread from the oven)
