Walnut Honey Bread Recipe
I look forward to Rosh Hashanah every year because I get to bake and eat this delicious Walnut Honey Bread. Jewish people all around the word celebrate this Holiday by eating food with honey, so the next year will be a sweet one. So it doesn’t matter what religion you are, a little sweetness doesn’t hurt anyone ;).
This Walnut Honey Bread Recipe was created by my Grandma. She uses many flavorings to give life to the bread. Flavoring include lemon zest, cloves, coffee and chocolate.
PLUS the crunch of the walnuts and sweetness of the honey make this the perfect dish to eat for breakfast. I usually make a few loaves in different sizes to give away as presents.
Have a slice every morning with your coffee and you’ll look forward every day to your mornings. It’s just so delicious! I had to hide them last night because my husband wanted to eat them all. I pulled them out for the photo shoot and right back to hiding – Hope they last until tomorrow.

This Walnut Honey Bread Recipe is very easy to make, simply dump all ingredients into a mixer and blend. Add to a greased loaf pan and bake. They rise up a great deal because it has yeast and baking powder. Cut slices up with a bread knife and they will look beautiful on a plate.

One tip when making this bread: save the prettiest pieces of walnuts to garnish the top before they bake. Mix the walnuts up with a little flour so they don’t sink to the bottom.
This recipe makes one huge loaf or 2 medium ones. I usually do a double a batch to make little loafs and medium ones. So if you plan on giving a few of them away to family and friends, just double or triple the batch. Remember, everything goes inside the mixer so it makes no difference.
