Crusty Raisin and Walnut Bread- A savory bread with a tinge of sweetness

This crusty Raisin & Walnut bread is not a sweet bread, but it is more on the savory side. The whole wheat flour and the raisins gave it a subtle sweetness that makes it ideal for breakfast but also for a simple snack. This bread can be toasted and it makes for just about the best toast ever. Perfectly crisp on the outside, perfectly chewy and soft on the inside, with a touch of sweetness from some raisins and that hint of crunch from the walnuts. My Kids love to eat this Walnut and raisin bread sliced and toasted and topped with a delicious spread of butter on the top. It makes for a perfect breakfast or as a snack.  I’ve also used this bread to make French Toast.

Kid Friendly Crusty raising and walnut bread for any time!

 My family’s favorite way to enjoy fresh bread is lightly toasted with a good slather of Irish butter and a drizzle of raw honey. My boys love to have this bread at any hour of the day. The crumb in this bread is slightly chewy, moist and hearty. Absolutely delightful! Look at the crackly brown crust here is the result of baking this bread in a dutch oven. By keeping the lid on while the bread bakes, you create a nice steamy atmosphere inside the pot – and the steam is what gives the bread that crispy, magical crust!

Quick Tips to ensure that your homemade bread is easy to make 

Tip on how  to store Yeast

  • Always check the expiration date on your yeast and make sure it hasn’t expired.
  •  If you don’t bake often, buy the smaller yeast packages rather than a big jar of yeast. It is a living organism and over time it will lose activity. It will deteriorate even if you’ve never opened the jar or package. 
  • Keep unopened yeast packages in a cool and dry place to have them last longer. Something like your food closet. 
  • Once your yeast package or jar has been opened, you must refrigerate the yeast or freeze it in an airtight container.

 The easiest way to know that is by tapping the bottom of the bread. When ready, the bread will sound hollow if you knock the bottom of the bread. 

 

The best way to store homemade bread is to wrap it in a dish towel or a paper bag and keep it in a dry place.
 
I hope you enjoy this bread! We’ve been enjoying it toasted with butter and our homemade strawberry jam or Pineapple jam for breakfast.

Your heading clearly says Dutch oven but you put it in an Insta Pot. Am I missing something? Can this be done in a Dutch oven and where are the instructions for that?

My IP doesn’t have the yogurt feature. Can I still make this recipe in my IP? Do any adjustments need to be made?
