Auberge of the Flowering Hearth | Walnut WholeWheat Bread

March 2016

Since the lower slopes of the Alps and the Dauphiné to the west of the city of Grenoble are the main centers in France for the growing of walnut trees, it is hardly surprising that Mademoiselle Ray bakes a superb wholewheat whole-nut walnut bread. She gives it the strong character of the nuts by first blending into the dough a substantial amount of finely ground nutmeats and then folding in the uncut nut halves. The dough itself is made with a relatively coarse wholewheat flour, so that it has an attractive chewy country texture.   - Roy Andries de Groot, Walnut Wholewheat Bread, Breads and Cakes, Auberge of the Flowering Hearth, p. 412

This cookbook is quite old and uses the most bizarre way to list the ingredients! They're all over the place. And, wouldn't you know it? The water is missing from the ingredients list. (But DON'T get me started...).
