Steps

1. Put all the ingredients in a bread machine, and use the "dough" program or one that stops after the 1st rising.
2. When the first rising is complete, divide the dough into 3 portions.
3. Round off each portion of dough, place seam side down and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
4. Round off each ball of dough again.
5. Put the dough on a baking sheet, and leave to rise again at 45 °C for 30 to 40 minutes. Since the dough will be baked on this sheet later, leave plenty of room between the pieces.
6. When the dough has doubled in size, the 2nd rising is done.
7. Make cuts in each piece with kitchen scissors to make them into walnut shapes.
8. Make 4 cuts in each (in a cross pattern) as shown in the photo.
9. Put a walnut in the center to decorate.
10. Press the walnut down firmly all the way to the bottom. If you don't press firmly enough, it'll pop off when baking.
11. When all 3 rolls are formed, bake in a preheated 180 °C oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
12. This is a version formed into a rectangular bread loaf. See Recipe ID: 1030697 for how to form the loaf.
