Greek Christmas Bread

Ingredients:
1 package (or 1 tablespoon) Active Dry, Yeast
1/4 cup Warm Water (110 to 115, degrees)
1/3 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground Cardamom
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Egg
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1-1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Golden Raisins
1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped

Method:
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Combine the sugar, cardamom, salt, egg, milk and oil in a large bowl. Mix well. Add the yeast mixture, flours, raisins and nuts. Mix well. Add enough extra flour to make soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Shape into a round loaf. Put the dough into a lightly-oiled 8-inch-round cake pan. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Bake in a 350-degree oven 35 to 40 minutes, or until brown.
