|I took out the cinnamon, but decided against it|
Add the zest of one orange, and let the mix sit while you make your dough.
Proof 3 tsp of active dry yeast in 1/2 cup warm water and 1 tsp sugar
Once the yeast starts to ferment, add 1+ 1/2 cups warm water, 1 tsp salt, 4 tbs butter
Add a bit at a time: 2+1/2 cups flour, 2 cups whole wheat flour, 4 tbs ground flax seed (flax meal)(optional)
Add the cranberries and 1 cup chopped walnuts. Knead the dough lightly for one or two minutes, adding a dusting of flour as needed.
Divide dough into two rounds and place on a parchment covered baking sheet to rise again for an hour or so.
Slit the dough to form a square, brush with an egg wash and place in a 375 degree oven for 30-35 minutes, check for doneness; return to oven for up to 10 minutes if needed but lower oven temp to 350.
