The recipe is courtesy of Hubby. He’s the bread maker and carb eater in this household 🙂
He likes to bake bread and this is his best yet! It’s light, airy and the pecans add another dimension to the bread. You can substitute walnuts for the pecans.
The Kitchen Aid is man’s best friend according to Hubby. He uses it regularly to make bread and will invent any excuse to use it!
- 600ml warm water
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 packet of fresh yeast
- 1.5L strong flour
- 50ml vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp salt
- 200-300ml pecans
Crumble the yeast in the warm water with sugar. Let stand until bubbles appear
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix for 10 minutes (preferably in the Kitchen Aid) until the dough comes together
Let rise in the same bowl until it has doubled in size
Divide into 2 pieces and shape into loaf pans
Allow to proof in the loaf pans for about an hour
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes or until golden brown
Turn out of the pans and allow to rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.
