Honey, Cranberry & Walnut Bread

Especially delicious with freshly churned butter!

Course Breakfast, Snack
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Resting time 1 day
Servings 1 loaf


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1/4 sachet yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp chunky sea salt or can be flakes
  • 1/3 cup ground walnuts
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (can do 1 1/2)
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/4 cup honey (gets stirred in the water)


  1. Mix flour, yeast and salt in a bowl.

  2. Add cranberries and walnuts, stir again making sure they are evenly distributed.

  3. Mix honey and water, then pour into the bowl.

  4. Mix until slightly sticky.

  5. Leave in a warm place for about 24 hours to rise.

  6. Pour the mixture on a baking paper (you might need a pinch of flour so it doesn't stick to your hands/wooden spoon when pouring out). Place in a baking dish with a lid. This is super important - your baking dish needs to have a lid (like this one). If it doesn't, the bread turns out super dense and not airy and fluffy at all. Leave for another hour to rise for the second time.

  7. Put the baking dish with the lid on in the oven on 200 degrees for 35 minutes.

  8. Leave to cool down before eating, this one will give you a good tummy ache if you eat it right out of the oven!
