Whole wheat bread with gifs & walnut


the original recipe adopted from mark Hoffman, I bake whole wheat bread every now and then because it’s my dad,s favorite and it’s so easy to make.


300g whole wheat  flour.

80g cornmeal or almond flour.

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

395ml full fat yogurt

120ml date molasses

100g  toasted walnuts, chopped

105g dried figs, chopped

1 teaspoon unsalted butter (melted)


Place a wire rack at midlevel in the oven and preheat the oven to 160c/gas mark 3

Mix the yogurt with date molasses in a bowl, set aside

In a large bowl, stir together the flour cornmeal or almond flour , salt and baking soda.

Add the flour mixer to the yogurt mixer in patches and whisk.

The dough will be thick. Now fold in the walnuts and figs.

Grease a loaf pan with butter size 8 inches

And pour the mixture in ( it will be full but that’s ok )

Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. The bread will be golden brown in color when done and is ready when a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean and the the top should be slightly firm but soft to touch.

Let it cool and serve.
