Whole Wheat Cinnamon Nut Bread

Comment on this recipe

This bread makes a nice gift.

Ingredients

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
4 eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1 cup corn oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons finely grated orange peel
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel
1-inch piece ginger root, finely grated
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup brown sugar, tightly packed
1 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine the flours and baking powder. In another large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on low-medium speed, beat eggs, egg yolk, oil, cinnamon, orange and lemon peels, ginger and vanilla until slightly frothy. Slowly add the brown sugar, increasing the speed to medium. Beat in the flour mixture a little at a time until all the ingredients are blended. Stir the walnuts into the dough. Spoon the dough into two well-buttered and lightly floured, 8x4-inch loaf pans. Bake 45-55 minutes or until loaves are deep golden brown and sound hollow when tapped. A tester will come out clean when bread is done. Remove bread from oven; cool in pans 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool an additional 25-30 minutes.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
