Italian Walnut and Marmalade Bread

I'm delving into my Italian bag of tricks to present this very easy to make bread.

Pane di Noce e Marmellata d'Arance/Italian Walnut and Marmalade Bread

300g plain flour
4 teaspoons dry yeast
100g walnut kernels, roughly chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
80ml milk
50g softened butter
150g orange marmalade

Sift the flour and the yeast, then add the nuts, eggs, milk, butter and marmalade. Mix together by hand or with a mixer equipped with a dough hook.

Lightly knead the mix until it's fully incorporated and forms a nice homogeneous dough.

Form into a sausage shape and place in a well buttered and floured loaf tin.

Leave it in a warm place at least 20 minutes then place in a warm oven (180°C/350°F) until nicely browned and cook through (about 30 minutes).

When done let it cool on a wire rack - I like to lightly coat the top with a orange icing (a simple mix of icing sugar and orange juice).

Delicious served warm with lashing of butter and marmalade.
