Greek Christmas Bread

You’ll Need:

* 1 pk (or 1 tablespoon) Active Dry Yeast * 1/4 cup Warm Water (110 to 115 degrees)
* 1/3 cup Sugar
* 1 tea spoon Ground Cardamom
* 1/4 tea spoon 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

Procedures : 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
