Speciality breads liven up any dining table and walnut bread is hugely versatile, partnering well with preserves for breakfast, or with cheese for a sandwich or after-dinner course.

The maple syrup complements the walnuts perfectly and gives the loaf a gentle sweet lift.

Heat the oven to 230ºC.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, starch, baking powder, baking soda, xanthin gum, cinnamon and salt.

Heat the butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter turns a nut brown colour, then remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the maple syrup, buttermilk and eggs, then stir in the browned butter.

Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined. Then stir in the walnuts.

Pour into a well-greased 9×5-inch loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes until risen and a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.


For extra indulgence, spread the bread with delicious maple butter.
