Ingredients

1 1/2 C. bread flour
1 1/2 C.  white wheat or whole wheat flour
3 tsp. Clabber Girl® Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Clabber Girl® Baking Soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 C.  olive oil
1 egg
1 1/4 C.  buttermilk or half n half
1 C.  gorgonzola or bleu cheese, crumbled
3/4 C.  walnuts, toasted
optional-egg for egg wash

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and bake for about 6 to 8 minutes-they will burn quickly at this temperature so keep an eye on them.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk the olive oil, egg and buttermilk or half n half. Work the cheese into the flour using your hands, similar to how butter is worked into flour for a pastry crust – but just long enough to coat the cheese, about 30 seconds. Make a well in the center , pour in the liquids followed by the toasted walnuts. Stir together with a wooden spoon just until the dough pulls together.
  3. Divide the dough into equal portions. (If you like, whisk an egg with a few tsp. of water and brush over the top for a shinier appearance). Bake for about 15 – 18 minutes. Cool briefly and serve warm.
