Bread Baking Buddies Pane ai Cinque Cereali con Noci

This month is the Bread Baking Babes' anniversary and what would be nicer than a walnut loaf to celebrate ?

Tanna of My Kitchen in Half Cups chose as BBB Anniversary Bread Carol Field’s Pane ai Cinque Cereali con Noci (Five-Grain Bread with Walnuts). Adapted from The Italian Baker by Carol Field. I love this book: it's the second one I got on bread baking when I was living in Santa Barbara (CA) almost.......25 years ago (sob !) and I've never seen an Italian baking book so complete !!

I really enjoied this bread, the dough seemed so much that I divided it in three loaf pans so they didn't raise too much but the crunchiness it's not a problem with it !!
