Use your bread maker to mix and knead the dough then simply shape and bake in the oven. The delicious undertones of rich dark ale and crunchy walnuts work really well with a thick layer of butter and some strong cheese to create a divine ploughman's lunch. Some of our community bakers have suggested making it into breadsticks to dip in chutney.
Put the ingredients into the bread maker baking pan in the order specified for your particular model (see manufacturer’s handbook).
Set to the basic white program. Add the walnuts at the time for added ingredients, as directed by the manufacturer of your machine.
Remove the dough from machine and knead again until smooth. Shape the dough into a circle.
Place onto a greased baking sheet and leave to prove until double in size.
Cut a deep cross into the top of the loaf and decorate with walnuts.
Bake at 190°C (170°C fan, 375°F, gas mark 5) for 30 minutes.
