What a great bread! I used the Sweet cycle on my Wellbilt, and after the 2nd knead, I paused the machine, rolled out the dough approximately 5 by 18. Used half amount of the filling listed, and rolled from the short side. Pinched the ends and edge closed, and returned the dough to the machine and resumed the cycle. Did not use topping. This made a perfect swirl and did not have to use my oven.
Disappointed. Tried to make a variation described by sandygocal, but the dough turned out extremely sticky and messy. Result tasted ok, but I felt it was a waste of good walnuts. Won't be making this one again.
My husband and father both loved this bread. Both went back for seconds, which is something these two picky eaters hardly ever do. Next time I will try it as a loaf instead of a ring.
We all enjoyed this recipe, but I think next time I will use pecans rather than walnuts (just a personal preference).
Easy and relatively quick. I will be making this for our family at the holidays.
I am not a big walnut fan, so I made mine without walnuts, and it is still fabulous!!!!!
Awesome recipe! My kids loved it. To try to make it more healthy I substituted 1 cup of white flour with 2 heaping tablespoons of milled flax seed and then filled the rest of the measuring cup with whole wheat flour. It was a gloppy mess after the dough cycle ended so I added a small amount of white flour (2-3 T) and gently worked it in; let it rise in warm oven for about 20 minutes and continued onward. I also increased cinnamon to 1 t (we love cinnamon) and omitted the raisins. It did take a little longer bake, 4-5 minutes maybe, and as suggested I lightly covered it after 12 minutes of baking. Not a hard a recipe -- machine did most of the work. Thanks Marylyn! P.S. No one noticed the flax or the wheat :-)
This is a wonderful recipe! It isn't too sweet & it is beautiful to look at. I made it using wheat flour (minus the raisins) & it turned out very nice. I did have to cover it for the last few minutes as the walnuts started to burn. I will definately make this one again!
The way I made this, it was a delicious cinnamon swirl bread. I was able to make two 8 inch loafs with this. The only thing I would do next time is to double the filling, but I think that it was lacking filling because of the fact that I made it two loaves instead of a ring. Will make this again! Tastes great toasted with butter and a cup of tea!
