  • Lightly toast the walnuts, let cool and dust in a touch of flour

  • Check the doneness of the bread, when a toothpick comes out a little sticky, rotate the pans in the oven and back for another 10 minutes or so.
  • Do the toothpick check again.  If the toothpick comes out of the cake clean, the bread is done.
  • Remove from the oven and place pan on top of a wire cooling rack for about ten minutes.
