I liked this bread, although next time I would add a tablespoon or two more of the brown sugar. It has a very nutty, wheaty taste - the walnuts and wheat flour are very complimentary. I used my bread machine by adding the melted margarine, hot water (as hot as you can get it since the rest of the liquid ingredients will cool it down), the salt, and the yogurt (all I had was peach - I don't think it matters as I can't taste any peach whatsoever in the end result). Then I topped the liquid ingredients with the flours, sugar, and at the top the yeast. [Overdetailed for those new to the bread machine miracle]. I included only about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, as I usually dislike nuts in baked goods (ironically, we have walnut orchards so I try to use them when I can). I put the nuts in the "add ins" part of my breadmaker (if you don't have this component, just add it in with the dry ingredients. I selected the dough cycle w/ add ins, which kneaded it. I let it rise once in the machine, punched it down, and then divided the dough up into about 16 round rolls. Let it rise in the turn-off oven (or some other draft-free warm spot) for an hour, and then bake until golden (maybe about 15-20 minutes).
Overall, loved this recipe. Chop the nuts relatively finely (or not) depending on your taste. The result is soft, tasty, and perfect for a unique and "gourmet" type dinner roll. The texture reminded me of the bread in olive-bread (but thankfully w/o the taste of olives): e
