Simple Cranberry Walnut Bread



IMG_5813It is in Canada that I learned about this kind of bread, stuffed with dried berries and nuts. I was surprised how good it tasted!!

Serves 10 slices


  • 300g of stone ground wholemeal bread flour
  • 40g of dried cranberries
  • 40g of walnuts (coarsely chopped)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated white sugar
  • 11g of dry instant yeast
  • 200ml of warm water


  1. In a bowl, add the flour, the yeast and the granulated sugar.
  2. Mix with your hands and add the salt.
  3. Add the dried cranberries and the walnuts and mix again to combine all the ingredients together.
  4. Pour the water and knead with your hands until the dough becomes elastic.
  5. Set aside and leave to rise for 1 hour. Cover with a clean kitchen towel.
  6. Preheat your oven at 180 C.
  7. Flour a baking pan.
  8. Remove the dough from the bowl into a clean flour dusted surface and knead again for a few minutes.
  9. Make a shape that you want with your dough, I choose a log shape today.
  10. Transfer the log into the baking pan and bake for 40 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3o minutes.
  12. You can store the bread in a clean kitchen towel as my mother and my grand-mother showed me.

We love this bread in the morning for breakfast or anytime during the day accompanied with feta cheese or dip into extra virgin olive oil.

Bon Appetit.
