Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Brownie Walnut Bread, a yeast bread to enjoy! Different and delicious.
Brownie Walnut Bread, a yeast bread.
As written this is not a sweet bread, it is delicious and with the sugar listed in the recipe, it is also wonderful as sandwich bread. This bread would make an unbelievable good chicken sandwich....

IF you want a sweeter bread, increase the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. And it goes without saying, this would be wonderful rolled up with a spicy cinnamon swirl in the works!

I have noticed this bread in various places, and as it turns out in one of my own cookbooks! Honestly, when I first noticed this bread, my first thought was meh.

But one day I decided to try it, I don't know why, but I am so very glad I did. It turns out it is not only good, but it is also delicious and not at all like I thought it would be. As it turns out, it is so much better!

Yeasted Brownie Bread with Walnuts

adapted from: The All New Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook
by Tom Lacalamita

1/3 c warm water
2/3 c milk, warm slightly
5 T butter, cut into small chunks
1 t salt
1/3 c brown sugar (1/2 c for a sweeter dough)
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa
3 c flour
2 1/4 t yeast

2/3 c chopped toasted walnuts

Layer ingredients into bread machine pan in order given. Leave walnuts for later. Process the on dough setting.

When the dough is done mixing and going into the final rise, add walnuts to the side of the pan, where they will warm to the same temperature as the dough.

(I could not get my machine to turn back on to knead the walnuts into the dough when the cycle ended and worked them in by hand)

Restart machine when the cycle ends to work in nuts, or turn the dough out and work in my hand. Shape into a loaf, place in prepared pan, let rise final time.

When the dough has doubled in size, preheat oven to 350,

Bake 35-40 minutes or until done. Let rest 10 minutes in the pan, turn out to cool completely.

  1. What an unusual and delicious sounding bread. I don't have a bread machine, but once this heat has ended, I think I'll give it a whirl by hand. Also, thanks for the shout out--you're the best!

  2. Don't you love when you look at a recipe, it looks "okay", maybe nothing special and then when you try it it's a WOW!? I love the idea of a repost too - I have a cookie recipe that I posted back when my blog was new that would be perfect for Christmas so I need to bring it back or link it up so a blog hop. Thanks for the idea and thank you for linking this yummy bread up to Cookbook Sundays!

  3. Wow that bread sounds so unusual, but I bet it is really delicious. Definitely one to try.
