Greek Christmas Bread Recipe

1 package (or 1 tablespoon) active dry yeast

1/4 cup warm water (110 to 115 F.)

1/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cardamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup flour

1/4 cup golden raisins

1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Extra flour, as needed

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Combine the sugar, cardamon, salt, egg, milk and oil in a large bowl. Mix well. Add the yeast mixture, flours, raisins and nuts. Mix well. Add enough extra flour to make soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Shape into a round loaf.

Put the dough into a lightly-oiled 8-inch-round cake pan. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Bake in a 350 F. oven 35 to 40 minutes, or until brown.
