Greek Christmas Bread

1 package (or 1 tablespoon) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Combine the sugar, cardamom, 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-degree oven 35 to 40 minutes, or until brown.

Serves 15
