1 cup starter
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
12 dried apricots, diced
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 cups bread flour, bromated
1 teaspoon salt
Combine starter, water, oil, sugar and apricots and mix well. Add walnuts and the whole wheat flour; blend together with a whisk. Add 2 cups of the bread flour and mix again.

Put the dough into a greased (or sprayed with Pam) bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise until doubled in bulk.
Punch down and divide into three equal pieces. Put each piece into a greased loaf pan and let rise until they reach the tops of the pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until browned and pulling away from the sides of the pans.
