Campagne Chock Full of Nuts

Campagne Chock Full of Nuts

I tried to recreate the nut-filled bread I found in a bakery. This is a campagne that's full of nuts. It's healthy without oil, and it's tasty!

Ingredients

Bread (strong) flour
200 g
Whole wheat flour
50 g
Rye flour
50 g
Soft brown sugar
10 g
Salt
4 g
Water
110 g
Soy milk
110 g
Dry yeast
4 g
★Walnuts
40 g
★Almonds
30 g
★Cashew nuts
30 g
★Raisins
30 g

Steps

1. Roast the walnuts for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 170°C. (Be careful not to burn them). Boil the raisins and drain well. Chop the nuts into suitable sizes. (Check the helpful hints.)
2. Kneading by hands: Mix all the ingredients except for the ★ ingredients. After kneading for 5 minutes, mix the ★ ingredients and keep kneading. It's a bit hard to knead with nuts, but the dough will start to come together in about 5 minutes. Then roll into a ball, put the dough into a bowl spread with oil lightly, cover, and wrap. Leave to proof for the 1st rising until the dough has increased to double in size.
3. By bread maker: Put all the ingredients except for the ★ ingredients into a bread maker. Start with the kneading course. Add the ★ ingredients at the mix signal and leave until the 1st rising.
4. When the dough increases to double in size, punch the dough down and form it again. Rest for 20 minutes.
5. Form the dough into oval shapes and place on a baking sheet. Rest for the 2nd rising. In the photo, I made 1 big oval and 4 small ones.
6. When the dough has increased 1.5 to 2 times, sprinkle the rye flour with a tea strainer and make a slit. Bake for 25 minutes in an oven preheated to 200°C.
7. For moisture, I used 40 g of heavy cream (you can whip it if you want) and 180 g of water. The picture shows the bread pre-fermentation, but even then it's already fluffy.

Story Behind this Recipe

The nutty bread I had at the bakery was so good that I wanted to try recreating it at home.
