Nut Bread Recipe

Nut bread is a delicious and satisfying treat that has been enjoyed by many for generations. It is a simple recipe that combines fragrant nuts, flavorful spices, and moist bread to create a delightful baked good. In this recipe, we will be using a combination of graham flour, wheat flour, walnuts, raisins, and a hint of Mapleine flavoring for a unique twist. This recipe yields a perfect nut bread that is moist, hearty, and packed with flavor.

Before we proceed with the recipe, let's talk a bit about the history of nut bread. Nut bread has its origins in ancient civilizations, where nuts were often crushed and mixed with various grains to create a hearty and nutritious bread. Over time, the recipe has evolved and taken on different variations across different cultures.

Now, let's get started with the recipe!

- 3 cups graham flour
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup chopped English walnuts
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 small teaspoon "Mapleine" flavoring (if liked)
- 1/2 cup milk
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup floured raisins (seeded)

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a good-sized bread pan.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the graham flour, wheat flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined. This creates a base for our nut bread.

3. Add the chopped English walnuts and floured raisins to the flour mixture. Mix them gently to ensure they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

4. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, Mapleine flavoring (if desired), and milk. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the ingredients are well combined.

5. Gradually pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix everything together until a thick, slightly sticky batter forms. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to a dense texture.

6. Transfer the batter into the greased bread pan, ensuring that it is evenly distributed. Smooth the top with the back of a spoon or spatula.

7. Place the bread pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The baking time may vary slightly depending on your oven, so keep a close eye on it.

8. Once baked, remove the nut bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing. This cooling process allows the flavors to develop and the bread to set properly.

9. Once cooled, slice the nut bread into thick, hearty slices and serve with a spread of choice, such as butter or cream cheese. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack, or even as a dessert.

Fun Facts:
- Nut bread is a versatile recipe that can be customized to your preference. Feel free to experiment with different types of nuts, such as almonds, pecans, or hazelnuts, to create your own unique flavor profile.
- The addition of floured raisins adds a touch of sweetness and a burst of flavor to the nut bread. If you prefer your bread less sweet, you can reduce the amount of sugar or omit the raisins entirely.
- "Mapleine" flavoring is a maple extract that adds a delightful aroma and taste to the nut bread. However, if you don't have access to Mapleine flavoring, you can substitute it with vanilla extract or another flavoring of your choice.
